Research Summary

The Biostatistics and Computational Biology Branch carries out basic and applied research dealing with statistical issues of relevance to environmental health. The Branch's members develop new methodologies and apply existing techniques in novel ways to address environmental health problems. Members of the Branch also advise Institute scientists on computational, study design, database and statistical issues via both long-term and short-term collaboration in research projects throughout NIEHS. The Branch also offers training at regular intervals.
