Division of Biostatistics Research

Faculty in NYU Langone’s Division of Biostatistics work to advance scientific knowledge by innovating biostatistical methods and theories and implementing them across the entire spectrum of basic, clinical, and translational biomedical research.

Some examples of our recent work include the following:

  • developing new prediction methods that enable more refined and accurate classification of patients who have different subtypes of disease
  • creating methods to analyze the human microbiome, a high-dimensional and complex set of organisms in the body
  • designing innovative clinical trials to enable rapid-cycle development of new interventions

Our Collaborations

We collaborate with researchers throughout NYU Langone in a variety of areas. Members of our division have played integral roles in cancer research through the Perlmutter Cancer Center Biostatistics Shared Resource. We participate in environmental health research through the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Center’s Environmental Health Statistics and Bioinformatics Facility Core. Other division members work on clinical and translational research through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute Study Design’s Biostatistics and Clinical Research Ethics Core. Through these core groups, we collaborate with researchers across the whole spectrum of research, including basic science, clinical investigations, translational work, epidemiologic and population-based studies, implementation science, and secondary data analysis of large administrative and electronic health record data sources.

The following represent just a few of our successful collaborations:

  • research into the effects of the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center tragedy on both first responders and residents of New York City
  • evaluation of clinic- and community-based approaches to implementation of tobacco cessation interventions led by community health workers in underserved and/or minority populations
  • development of new biomarkers for risk of recurrence in patients with melanoma

NYU Biostatistics Resource

The NYU Biostatistics Resource offers an array of collaborative biostatistical and data science capabilities for NYU researchers. Our faculty and staff partner with investigators at every stage of the research process to generate clearly stated goals and hypotheses, define measureable outcomes, design studies, conduct analyses, interpret results, and produce scholarship. Dedicated units within the NYU Biostatistics Resource align with large research groups at NYU Langone.

Our faculty have expertise in a wide range of complex biomedical studies, including clinical trials, observational studies, laboratory experiments, high-throughput data analysis, and translational science. We perform advanced statistical analysis for complex model fitting; prediction; survival, longitudinal, and multivariate analysis; network analysis and machine learning; and integrated high-dimensional omics data analysis.
