Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics in the School of Public Health and Information Science at the University of Louisville. We appreciate your interest and welcome you to explore the site.

Our mission at the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics is to advance statistical science through methodological research, provide statistically sound collaboration to investigators, and disseminate new and existing knowledge in statistical science through education. The distinguished faculty of our department are engaged in cutting edge methodological research in biostatistics and provide support to investigators within and outside the university. Our Statistical Consulting Center is also available to investigators to get help with a quick stats question, find a consultant for help with study design or statistical analysis, or identify a collaborator for research grant application.

The Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics will soon be accepting applications for our new 15-credit hour Certificate in Biostatistics. Please contact us for more information on this exciting opportunity.

We are constantly growing and evolving here at the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, so we encourage you to thoroughly browse our site and visit regularly. We particularly invite prospective students to learn about biostatistics here at the University of Louisville and the exciting academic programs we have to offer, including our 3-semester Master of Science degree in biostatistics, which focuses on placing graduates into jobs in industry. Prospective students can also learn about our doctoral degree, the dual degree program offered in conjunction with the Department of Mathematics, and our joint degree program offerings with other universities.  We also offer the biostatistics concentration of the School of Public Health and Information Science’s MPH degree.

We appreciate your interest in us. If you’d like to get in touch with us to get additional information or ask questions, please feel free to contact us. Regards,
