Members of the biostatistics faculty lead research that develops novel statistical-methods approaches to meet complex data challenges across many domains. And they contribute as team scientists to investigations across many disciplines. Read about some of our findings.


How can we accurately portray the associations between exposure and disease in the era of “big data” and “precision medicine”? How can we now estimate causal effects, properly adjusting for confounding and bias? Such questions inspire our faculty members as they educate the next generation of leaders in biostatistical theory, methods and practice. Read about our teaching approach.

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.
