Biometry and Statistics
The Biostatistics degree programs are intended for those who wish to develop statistical theory and skills to solve a wide range of public health and clinical problems. Whether focused on the analysis and communication of public health data in governmental agencies, or involvement in public health or clinical research, biostatisticians are an important part of multi-disciplinary, scientific teams. The graduate programs in Biostatistics are designed to develop the theoretical foundation for applied statistical methods, and the application of these methods in the health sector. Our close relationship with the NYSDOH provides unique opportunities for learning-by-doing in collaborative research. Current statistical research areas of the department include time series, categorical data analysis, Bayes methods, propensity scoring, survival analysis, stochastic processes, sample surveys, mixture models and measurement errors.
