The division performs research in two broad areas: clinical epidemiology/outcomes research and biostatistics/genetic epidemiology. Within the area of clinical epidemiology/outcomes research, individual faculty interests include outcomes assessment measures, evaluation of health intervention studies, the epidemiology of occupational diseases, medical informatics, evaluation of educational and community interventions, cost effectiveness analysis, risk prediction, patient communication, and treatment in prognostic issues related to antithrombotic therapy. Within biostatistics/genetic epidemiology, faculty interests include novel statistical methods for classification, analysis of complex data sets such as those derived from gene chips, and the use of genetic polymorphisms. GMS faculty collaborate with investigators from many divisions and departments to aid in study design and data analysis to answer a wide variety of patient-oriented questions.
