The Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester conducts teaching and research in statistical theory and methodology oriented toward the health sciences. Our unique graduate program is located within a School of Medicine environment and provides many opportunities for stimulating interaction with applied research.
The department interprets the term "statistics" very broadly, with specialization available in probability, statistical theory and analysis, biostatistics, and interdisciplinary areas of application. Department faculty participate fully in graduate teaching and individual attention is given to each student through intensive advising, extensive small seminars, and research collaboration. Students have opportunities for supervised teaching and statistical consulting experience. Prior to completing their degrees, most Ph.D. students have several publications underway based on research done in collaboration with faculty members in biostatistics/statistics and in various medical departments.
