Why and how do diseases actually arise? What methods can we use to discover factors that affect patient survival after a stroke? Is pain measurable? Surveying and modelling the origin and treatment of diseases are common research areas for clinical and biomedical scientists. Biostatistics, the discipline involving application of statistical methods in medicine and biology, is a powerful tool in answering scientific questions.
Biostatistics are also numerical descriptions of data on humans and other living organisms. Our research group’s members have experience and knowledge of statistical, mathematical and epidemiological methodology, and are keenly interested in medical and biological research areas. In our work, we explore ways of applying data, through innovative use of statistical and epidemiological methods, to describe reality and forecast the future.
