Biostatistics can be used to show the most effective treatment in the spread of disease, or determine risk factors in genetic inheritance and mutation. The Master of Biostatistics covers areas such as the design of randomised controlled trials, categorical data and generalised linear models, survival analysis, and longitudinal and correlated data analysis.
Our biostatistics programs are accredited with the Statistical Society of Australia.
