Our Center encompasses research from many different disciplines, all requiring specialized statistical methods. In some cases, we need entirely new methods in order to better understand and model complex relationships. We also need a data repository so that others may easily access the tools and databases that we are developing. The DMAC provides this kind of support across all projects.
The goal of the DMAC is to provide statistical, bioinformatics, and data management support for all aspects of the project.
Our team is known for developing innovative statistical methods to help solve questions around environmental exposures and to integrate high dimensional exposure, molecular, and phenotypic data. We also provide support in geographic information systems (GIS) and statistics education and training for trainees and researchers connected with the SRC, and engage pre- and post-doctoral trainees from the Biostatistics Department in SRC projects.
