Biostatistics students in both the Masters and PhD programs are immersed in the division, assisting on high-impact national and international research projects, supporting the Division’s course offerings, and conducting their own research. Our students work closely with faculty advisers; with a student-to-faculty ratio that is one of the lowest among leading Biostatistics programs, students are able to get the training and personal attention they need to maximize their potential.

Students are actively involved in organizing both academic and social activities. The Student Seminar Series provides an opportunity to present and discuss work in progress, practice presentations for upcoming conferences, and learn new computing skills. Student seminars are typically closed to faculty.
