About Us: Mission and Vision

About Us: Mission and Vision

We are biomedical and population-health data scientists who generate valid, impactful knowledge by formulating important research questions; generating and deciphering biomedical and population-health data; and developing, applying and teaching state-of-the-art research methods.


We use our expertise in three complementary disciplines to generate knowledge that improves health for all, and we train tomorrow’s biomedical and population-health data science leaders.


We envision a healthier, more equitable world powered by biomedical and population-health data science.

About Us

To understand health and disease today, we need new thinking and novel science —the kind  we create when multiple disciplines work together from the ground up. That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics.
