Our work has been cited in TIME Magazine’s “The Year in Medicine”.
The network is designed to focus on clinical questions in maternal-fetal medicine and obstetrics, particularly with respect to the continuing problem of preterm birth.
The ARLG is an international cooperative clinical research network whose mission is to prioritize, design, and execute clinical research that will reduce the public health threat of antibacterial resistance.
The DPPOS aims to assess the long-term effects of interventions used in the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) on the development of type 2 diabetes and its complications.
TODAY2 is the long term follow-up of the youth from TODAY, to track the progression of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and related comorbidities and complications in the TODAY cohort as they transition to young adulthood.
BSC researchers advance the center’s mission of collaborative research by developing and implementing innovative practical methods for the design, execution, data monitoring, analyses and reporting of clinical studies. Current BSC research includes the design and analyses of studies that focus on patient-focused outcome measures that integrate efficacy and safety, personalized treatment, cost-effectiveness analyses, response-adaptive randomization, and pragmatic evaluation of diagnostic technologies.
Education and Training
To help advance the field of biostatistics research, BCS faculty and staff are active in a wide array of educational and training initiatives, including teaching at professional meetings, publishing educational manuscripts and books, hosting training programs for students and scientific collaborators, and providing mentorship opportunities.
