With over 25 faculty and 60 students, the Department of Biostatistics today is a leader in statistical training for academia, government and industry. Faculty members collaborate with investigators in an extremely large number of diverse disciplines, and as a result biostatistics students have ample research opportunities. Our research programs in Bayesian methods, causal inference, genetics, hierarchical models, HIV/AIDS, longitudinal data analysis, phylogeny, spatial statistics and geographical information systems, survival analysis, and optimal design are well-respected nationally and internationally. We continue to grow in terms of our faculty, students and programs to meet current and future needs.
