Biostatistics, evidence synthesis and informatics

Applying cutting-edge data analysis techniques to all areas of research

We enable researchers across the Bristol BRC to use cutting-edge approaches to organise and analyse large sets of data and sources of evidence. We coordinate and develop the skills of our researchers so they can apply the most appropriate and up-to-date analytical methods to their own areas of expertise.Our Biostatistics, Evidence Synthesis and Informatics theme works across the five clinical research themes: cardiovascular disease; mental health; nutrition, diet and lifestyle; perinatal and reproductive health and surgical innovation.
We link closely with the cross-cutting translational population science theme.
