University of Michigan School of Public Health to establish Center for Cancer Biostatistics
Idea is to provide advanced statistical analysis of data, further collaboration between cancer and statistical researchers
The University of Michigan School of Public Health plans to establish a Center for Cancer Biostatistics.
The idea is to provide advanced statistical analysis of data and further collaboration between cancer researchers and statistical researchers.
The center's work will be led by Jeremy Taylor, a professor who specializes in biostatistics, radiation oncology, computational medicine and bioinformatics.
In a statement, Taylor says a less formal association between the School of Public Health and the Comprehensive Cancer Center has been underway for years, but the new center will help "stimulate more collaboration and greatly improve the outcomes of cancer research."
