Data Science

The UMMC Center of Biostatistics was instituted in 2009 as a result of initiatives by the Vice Chancellor and the Office of Research. The center was formed to begin to fill the critical need for biostatisticians across UMMC's institutions and increase its research capacity. We continue to grow, providing our expertise and services to our UMMC community, our region and our global neighbors.
