    Our faculty in epidemiology work in many areas of public health: drug dependence, mental health, cardiovascular, reproductive, perinatal, pediatric, environmental, neurodevelopment, and infection.

    Our biostatistics faculty also work on a wide range of methods: Bayesian, statistical genetics, causal inference, trials, cost-effectiveness, high-dimensional data, longitudinal, and structural equations. This work is supported by extramural funding from several national agencies including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Patient-Centered Outcome Research Institute (PCORI).

    This funding also provides support for trainees in our graduate programs directly or as the basis for individual student or postdoctoral applications for funding. This includes supporting of students, postdoctoral fellows, and early investigators on NIH Research Supplements to Promote Diversity
