Biostatistics and Data Sciences

Quantitative methodology is critical for assurance of validity and reproducibility in the biomedical sciences. The missions of the Biostatistics and Data Science group are to support cutting-edge interventional and observational studies in aging, and to conduct methodological research and software development for data capture, analysis, and visualization of particular interest to the study of older adults. Major areas of focus include:

  • Methodology and tools development for reproducible research in aging;
  • Design and dissemination of tools for the capture, interpretation, and analysis of complex and high-dimensional data; and
  • Collaborative epidemiologic and interventional research focused on the preservation of independence and function in older adults.
