The Victorian Centre For Applied Biostatistics (Vcab): Building Core Methodological Capacity For Population Health
Grant number: 1035261 | Funding period: 2012 - 2017
Biostatistics is the scientific discipline that focusses on the methods used to design and analyse research studies on human health. Doctors and other researchers conduct increasingly complex studies to identify best approaches for the prevention and treatment of disease, and these studies must be underpinned by sound biostatistical methods. This Centre will develop a critical mass of expertise in this under-resourced area around a program of methodological research, translation and training.
