    Data ScienceData science is an emerging field encompassing processes and systems for extracting knowledge and insights from data. With its interdisciplinary approach that combines aspects of statistics, computer science, data mining, applied mathematics, predictive analytics and visualization, data science aims to turn vast amounts of data into actionable evidence.

    The Center of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics provides cutting-edge biostatistical and information science expertise to collaborators at UMMC. The center promotes the highest standards in research and education by providing consummate biostatistical expertise to collaborators and scholars towards translating data into evidence and answers. We promote the development of long-term collaborative relationships between our team members and investigators. This increases efficiency through familiarity with specialized areas and issues within disciplines and results in more responsive, comprehensive and productive service to our collaborators.

    Mission 

    To provide biostatistical and information science expertise in collaborative support of biomedical and health research.

    Clients we serve

    The Center of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics serves researchers at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) and other academic health centers, pharmaceutical companies, medical research organizations, managed care providers, non-profit organizations and government agencies, such as the NIH and state health departments.

    History

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