We are the home for the core quantitative research fields in public health: biostatistics, epidemiology and health services research.

Our faculty both lead research projects in these fields and participate in interdisciplinary teams with faculty in other departments to address complex problems in health and healthcare, in our communities and around the globe. 

Our mission is to improve the health of human populations and reduce disparities by expanding knowledge of factors that affect health, by advancing diverse methods for carrying out such research, and by training the next generation of innovative public health scholars and professionals.
