About our Research  

Biostatistics faculty and students are conducting cutting-edge research in bioinformatics, imaging, longitudinal data, missing data, survival analysis, statistical genetics, and many other areas.

We are involved in a wide range of collaborative research activities with faculty in the schools of public health, medicine, nursing, dentistry, and the U-M Institute for Social Research, among others. Both our methodological and collaborative research are well-funded through grants from the National Institutes of Health and other government and private agencies.
