    Description

    The BCC’s scope encompasses all non-cancer research at FSM, and it is distinct from the Biostatistics Core Facility in the Cancer Center. It is affiliated with NUCATS and its BERD program (Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design). The core’s 7 faculty biostatisticians and 4 statistical systems analysts are in the Department of Preventive Medicine. They provide expertise in statistical methods, research design and statistical computing necessary for independent and collaborative health science related research. Faculty statistical interests cover a range of areas including bioinformatics, computational biology, clinical trials, survival analysis, causal inference, semi-parametric models, diagnostic testing, and Bayesian methods. They maintain independent research in statistical methodology and undertake collaborative effort on funded grants, as well as statistical consultation and teaching.
