The BBB conducts research in statistical theory and methodology relevant to problems under investigation in the areas of maternal and child health. The Branch also provides statistical support in the design and conduct of clinical trials and consults and collaborates with intramural and extramural scientists on statistical and mathematical problems. The Branch also develops quantitative procedures appropriate for application in biomedical and life sciences and supports the statistical and applied mathematics activities of DIPHR.

The Branch’s mission is to:

  • Develop original biostatistical and bioinformatics research relevant for the research mission of the Division and Institute.
  • Engage in collaborative research with other Division, Institute, and extramural investigators working in research areas relevant for the Division and Institute.
  • Provide service to the Division, Institute, NIH, DHHS, and other government agencies via consultation, collaboration, and assistance to advance the scientific discipline of biostatistics and the goals of the Institute.
  • Recruit and mentor highly qualified students and trainees at various stages of their careers to position them for professional careers in biostatistical and bioinformatics research.
