This Biostatistics Program from Georgetown University will provide integrated training in computational, quantitative and biomedical sciences to support health-related research performed in academia, government and industry.
Students will not only acquire the quantitative and computational tools that underpin epidemiology and bioinformatics, but they will also gain substantive exposure to applications of these tools to biological and health sciences.
Today's life-science research demands a wider synthesis of skills from multiple disciplines than ever before. To address this need, it is essential to train individuals who focus on data-analysis and informatics tools and exploit databases for broad-based biomedical information.
