Biostatistics and Epidemiology Research Activities and Modes of Collaboration

The Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology was created in 2004 in part to respond to the Medical College's Strategic Plan to further develop clinical and translational research at Weill Cornell Medical College. The Division's role is to support and encourage laboratory, clinical, and outcomes research at the medical college and to serve as an academic home for biostatistics and epidemiology. Led by Madhu Mazumdar, Ph.D., Division Chief, faculty and staff pursue statistical and epidemiological research, offer expert collaboration to researchers from various fields, and train medical students, graduate students, and postdoctoral/clinical fellows through courses under the medical and graduate school curricula.

Division members are involved in innovative statistical research in the fields of "Design and Analysis of Clinical Trials," "Cutpoint Analysis," " Prognostic Factor Analysis," "Questionnaire Development and Validation," and "Adjustment of Confounding and Bias in Observational Studies." These queries are guided by and benefiting collaborative research projects. Faculty and staff also develop epidemiologic studies in hypertension, substance abuse prevention and treatment, cancer, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes.
