The Environmental Statistics and Bioinformatics Core provides intellectual guidance for quantitative aspects of the design and analysis of Center studies. Core faculty and staff have expertise in a full range of biostatistical methods, environmental risk assessment, Geographic Information System (GIS) and spatial statistics, as well as molecular biology, bioinformatics and statistical genetics. Core Faculty are mostly drawn from the Department of Biostatistics at HSPH, particularly the Program in Environmental Statistics, but also from the Environmental Health Department at HSPH.
In addition to providing support for study design and analysis, Core members undertake methodological research motivated by their collaborations with Center investigators. The Core runs a regular seminar series and often sponsors short-courses on specialized topics of interest to the community.
