Dear visitors, guests and colleagues,

The activities of the Department of Medical Statistics include clinical cooperations that we see through from grant applications to publications, a biostatistical advisory service for doctoral students and early career scientists, research in statistical methodology and teaching.

The current organizational structure of the department includes three working groups closely working together. These are Clinical Epidemiology and Health Economics, Statistical Methods for Clinical Trials as well as Biometry, Data Management and Informatics in Clinical Trials forming the interface between the Department of Medical Statistics and the Clinical Trials Unit UMG and supports clinical trials in all aspects of biometry and data management. Furthermore, the Core Facility "Medical Biometry and Statististical Bioinformatics" is based at the department.

Different main research areas with special expertise and experience have been established within the last years - as Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses and Statistical Methods for Infectious Diseases.

Further details on the structure of the Department are given in the organisational chart.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With best regards

Tim Friede
Professor of Biostatistics
