The Division of Biostatistics focuses on the development of statistical methods for biomedical research. We collaborate with University research partners on projects involving HIV/AIDS, heart and lung disease, cancer, neuroimaging, and many other clinical disciplines.

Performing methodological research in areas including Bayesian analysis, spatial statistics, statistical genetics, and causal inference, division faculty, students, and staff are involved in more than 100 research grants and contracts totaling more than $150 million.
