The Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics focuses on graduate education and research to improve human health and well being. Our faculty and staff collaborate with researchers in the basic and clinical sciences throughout the School and Medicine and Public Health and across the larger University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
