Epidemiology and Medical Statistics
Web: Permalink to this page

Medical statistics is a major area of statistical endeavour, and has had a considerable influence on clinical medicine and public health through applications, for instance, to the design and analysis of clinical trials and the epidemiology of chronic and infectious diseases.

The purpose of this Research Group is to foster further research into the theory and application of methodology to medical statistics, to encourage collaboration between its members and to establish the OU’s Department of Statistics as a centre for medical statistics research.
