Divisions

Research in the Department of Health Sciences Research is coordinated in and between three distinct divisions.

Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics

The Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics conducts disease-specific and multidisciplinary research involving data acquisition, management, analyses and interpretation. It advances knowledge through publication and dissemination of bioinformatics and statistics software and technical reports. The division's Bioinformatics Core and Biostatistics Core support investigators at all stages of basic, translational, clinical and personalized medicine research.

Division of Epidemiology

The Division of Epidemiology studies the occurrences and determinants of health and disease in patients, populations and communities — from local to national and global. Research focuses on specific diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and neurological disease, as well as broad-ranging, long-term studies.
