Research Highlight

Many faculty members work on applying statistical methods to biomedical problems, ranging from analysing gene expression data to public health issues. Much of this work is done in conjunction with local hospitals (such as St Paul's) and research institutes (such as the BC Cancer Agency and the BC Genome Sciences Center).  In the fall of 2009, we introduced the biostatistics option to our  MSc program, an option that is joint with the School of Population and Public Health
