Biostatistics Program

Members of the Biostatistics Program employ statistics and mathematical principles to analyze biological and genetic data and processes and evaluate diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive medical methods and practices. We provide statistical collaboration and coordination for research programs within and outside the center. Our researchers work broadly, routinely partnering with scientists in other PHS programs, as well as biostatisticians in other Fred Hutch divisions.
