Biostatistics and Medical Biometry

Biostatistics and medical biometry are central to the life sciences and medical research. It covers a wide range of tasks with different areas of application, particularly in medicine and epidemiology. In general, biostatistics and medical biometry deal with a wide range of issues and play an important role in health research. As part of epidemiology, various factors and influences on the spread of diseases are analyzed. Statistical models are developed to determine and predict epidemiological indicators such as the prevalence, incidence, and mortality of diseases.

The work of the interdisciplinary working group is usually carried out in cooperation with external research institutions, clinics, doctors, and other researchers.

The statistical models we investigate are mainly used in the life sciences, but also in other fields. In this context, the research of the biostatistics and medical biometrics team focuses on the following areas

  • development of statistical methods for meta-analyses,
  • modeling of disease dynamics,
  • development and application of new approaches for survival time analysis.

We also offer comprehensive biometric consulting to support other research projects.
