Medical Statistics and decision making
The development, improvement and dissemination of advanced statistical methodology as well as applications in clinical and epidemiological research.
The unit’s research activities focus on methods concerning statistical modeling and medical decision support. Emphasis is on longitudinal and time-to-event analyses, as well as on causal inference techniques. These are also central topics in the research programme Life Course Epidemiology. Another research focus is on decision analysis techniques to support benefit-risk assessments of medicines.
We feel responsible for the statistical education at the UMCG. In basic and advanced courses, we teach statistical methods to students and postgraduate students. In addition to methodological research and teaching, the unit collaborates with other units of the Department of Epidemiology, as well as with various clinical departments in the UMCG. In joint research projects we offer tailor-made statistics for medical research and provide statistical support in the design and analysis of clinical studies.
