Biostatistics Graduate Programs


The Graduate Program in Biostatistics offers courses of study leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Science (ScM), and Master of Arts (AM) degrees. Our program also jointly oversees the Statistics Concentration in the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program.

The Graduate Program is administered by an active, expanding and highly interdisciplinary faculty in the Department of Biostatistics within Brown University's School of Public Health. Major areas of research activity include analysis of biomarkers and diagnostic tests, causal inference and missing data, time series and functional data analysis, spatial data and network analysis; bioinformatics, longitudinal data, meta-analysis and multilevel modeling. Faculty collaborate actively with investigators in cancer prevention and screening, behavioral sciences, HIV/AIDS, health care policy, evidence based medicine, genetic epidemiology, neuroscience, and genomics. Biostatistics faculty are members of the Center for Statistical Sciences (CSS) or the Center for Evidence Based Medicine.  CSS hosts the Biostatistics Methods and Data Center for the NCI-funded American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN), the Biostatistics Core for Brown’s Center for AIDS Research, and the Biostatistics Core for Brown's multidisciplinary Alcohol Research Center for HIV (ARCH), and of the Center for Evidence Based Medicine which hosts the Brown Evidence Based Practice Center funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
