The Biostatistics Center at Massachusetts General Hospital includes faculty and staff who are deeply embedded in collaborative research projects across the MGH community and beyond.

The mission of the Center is to engage in impactful trans-disciplinary collaborations involving quantitative methods in public health and biomedicine.

Our faculty and staff develop, evaluate and apply rigorous statistical and data science methods across a broad spectrum of research areas. These include studies in cancer, cardiology, emergency medicine, psychiatry, pediatrics, infectious diseases, neurology and many other areas of clinical and translational research. We have shared expertise in methods for clinical trials, observational studies, clustered and longitudinal data, missing data, survival analysis, machine learning, genetics and genomics, implementation science, and precision medicine applications.

The Biostatistics Center partners with the Mass General Division of Clinical Research, the Harvard Catalyst Program, the Harvard Cancer Center, and the Mass General Mongan Institute. We are home to a data coordinating center for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and a Rare Cancer Genetics Registry. Our members are also engaged in local and global educational initiatives focused on contemporary biostatistical methods and state-of-the-art data science tools.

We always welcome new collaborations!
