Biostatistics Faculty

About the Biostatistics Group

Many issues in the health, medical and biological sciences are addressed by collecting and exploring relevant data. We offer training in the theory of statistics and biostatistics, computer implementation of analytic methods, and opportunities to use this knowledge in areas of biological and medical research.

The Biostatistics Group works closely with the Texas A&M Department of Statistics to offer graduate programs leading to a Master of Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in biostatistics. These programs are geared toward students who have a mathematical or statistical background with a major interest in the biomedical sciences, or those with a degree in the biological/biomedical sciences who are interested in pursuing a career in biostatistics.

Faculty members actively collaborate with colleagues in other departments of the School of Public Health and Texas A&M colleges. In addition, the biostatistics faculty collaborate with other universities as well as state and federal agencies. The group provides assistance on grant writing, study design, and data analysis for many health-related studies. Current departmental statistical expertise is in biological processes, statistical genetics, survival and longitudinal data analysis, and statistical computing.
