Course summary

Overview

We're one of the UK's largest biostatistics departments. With a track record of funded research and a commitment to research excellence, we're an ideal environment for developing the skills and applications needed to tackle health challenges in stratified medicine, infections, regenerative medicine and public health.

The Department of Biostatistics provides an umbrella for cross-disciplinary units and initiatives, including the Clinical Trials Research Centre and the Medical Research Council North West Hub for Trials Methodology Research.

The Department of Biostatistics is currently involved in the supervision of several students whose projects cover a wide range of topics, both in biostatistics and related health research fields. The development of, and support, for researchers is a high priority in the department.

Academic staff in the Department of Biostatistics are undertaking high-impact research in statistical genetics, pharmacogenetics, joint modelling of longitudinal and time-to-event data, multivariate data analysis, stereology, multi-source evidence synthesis and clinical trials. The Department of Biostatistics has a sustained track record of research funded by the MRC, Wellcome Trust, Horizon 2020 and NIHR, and is committed to excellence in methodological and applied research.

This provides an ideal environment for postgraduate research students to develop new methodological skills and applications to important health challenges in stratified medicine, infections, regenerative medicine and public health.
