Biostatistics is the science that applies statistical theory and mathematical principals to research in medicine, biology, environmental science, public health and related fields. Public health biostatisticians use mathematical and scientific methods to determine the cause of disease and injuries, to identify health trends within communities, and to evaluate programs. For instance, .

      A large part of some class sessions was just reviewing a long and tedious public health article and going over the statistical tests, why alternatives weren't use, possible weaknesses, distribution issues, etc. The book we used (Biostats by Rosner) was referred to only for the theory, math, and sometimes for sample problems. The principal goal of the M.S. program is to prepare highly qualified individuals for future Ph.D. training and for careers in biostatistics practice. This training is conducted in the innovative and interdisciplinary public health culture of the college of public health and health professions and the college of medicine.

    Research. Department of Biostatistics faculty members are dedicated to performing cutting-edge theoretical and applied research. Areas of expertise include clinical trials and epidemiology, study design, survey methodology, decision theory, generalized linear models, longitudinal data analysis, survival analysis, structural equation models and diagnostic testing.

There is, to my knowledge, no really good book on medical statistics at all. Most books provide collections of "recipies" and do not promote understanding or "statistical thinking".Biostatistics plays a key role in each of these functions.

In terms of assessment, the value of Biostatistics lies in deciding what information to gather and the identified health problems, in finding patterns in collected data, and in summarizing and presenting these in an effort to best describe the target population.Dozens of UB faculty, staff and students — plus community partners and research collaborators — have contributed to a new textbook, “Transforming Global Health: Interdisciplinary Challenges, Perspectives, and Strategies” (Springer, /ISBN ), that provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary look at the field of global health.
