What do Biostatisticians Do?

A biostatistician is someone who uses mathematics and statistics to develop methods for study designs and data analysis to advance scientific knowledge in biology, biomedical science and public health, with the ultimate goal of improving human health. Biostatisticians also collaborate with biomedical and public health scientists to design research studies, perform the statistical analyses and draw pertinent information to address research hypotheses, using the evidence gathered from the data.

Biostatistics is the ideal career path for people who like math and want an exciting career solving real world problems! Learn more about what biostatisticians do here and here
