Welcome to the Division of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics at
UC San Diego
The Division of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics was established in 2001 as part of the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health. Our goal is to pursue excellence in four principal areas:
- Methodological research in biostatistics and bioinformatics, in particular methods responsive to new quantitative and scientific problems arising from advances in medicine, biology and health care systems
- Collaborative clinical, biological, and translational research
- Education in contemporary statistical theory and applications
- Service to the university and local community.
