Biostatistics Centre

Te Pokapū Tatauranga Koiora

The Biostatistics Centre on Dunedin Campus supports Health Sciences researchers with the highest quality biostatistical advice and research collaboration. Our biostatisticians are academic staff members who have expertise in health sciences disciplines and research methods.

New policy update

The biostatisticians (as a group) have enjoyed long standing collaborations with people in the Health Sciences Division for many decades. Our core business is collaborating with and providing advice to researchers in health related areas. We welcome new collaborations with Health researchers.

Contact the biostatisticians through our database

We have developed a checklist to help clarify how people should engage with the Centre.

Over the last two years the Biostatistics Centre has been clarifying and setting in place policies and procedures in order to deliver on its vision to be world leaders in providing biostatistical collaboration and advice for health related research.
Biostatistics Centre vision and mission statements

We have noticed that many students seeking our help do not have sufficient statistical knowledge to obtain a high-quality solution. Therefore, we are making it mandatory for all students to undertake our Introduction to Biostatistics for Clinical Researchers course before contacting us.
Sign up for the Introductory Biostatistics for Clinical Researchers course

We have also noticed an increased number of undergraduate or honours students approaching us – in these cases the supervisor needs to approach us, not the student. This is important to ensure the right information is obtained from the supervisor who has responsibility for these projects.
