Need help planning and analyzing your research studies?

The Medical Biostatistics Unit (MBU) serves the entire University community, collaborating with researchers to conduct studies focusing on important medical, health, psychological, and social issues. Our goal is to provide comprehensive services across the entire life course of a research study, from design to statistical analysis and reporting results, to ensure studies are scientifically rigorous from conception to final interpretation and dissemination.

Medical Biostats: Then and Now

Begun in the 1960's as the Biometry Facility, the Medical Biostatistics Unit evolved during the 1970's as an independent entity from the Departments of Community Medicine and Epidemiology/Environmental Health of the College of Medicine.

Currently, eight individuals work in the unit in offices located on the first floor of the Hills Agricultural Science Building, west of the Health Sciences Research Facility.
