The mission of the University of Florida Department of Biostatistics is to develop, disseminate and apply biostatistical and analytical methods for research in the health sciences, encompassing both research design and analysis. We strive to advance knowledge in biostatistics and health through educational programs for students and researchers, and we provide leadership and outstanding scholarship in research, teaching, and service, in fulfillment of this mission.
Our faculty members include leaders in the development of statistical methods for clinical trials, survival analysis, decision theory and genetic studies. Their mission is to provide scholarship in biostatistics and partnership in research for the six colleges of UF’s Health Science Center, as well as the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the UF Shands Cancer Center, the McKnight Brain Institute and other academic units across UF.
Widely published in academic journals and well-funded by numerous sponsors, such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Children’s Cancer Foundation and the Department of Veterans Affairs, biostatistics faculty members are performing critical scientific investigations that offer many opportunities for students in the department’s Ph.D., M.S., and M.P.H. programs.
The Department is currently located in Dauer Hall, but it will be housed in UF’s Clinical and Translational Research Building when construction is completed in 2013, sharing space with several other departments and UF’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute and the Institute on Aging.
