The Biostatistics department is unique within IUPUI because it resides within two schools, the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health and the IU School of Medicine. The department is home to faculty pursuing research in the early progression of Huntington disease, developing biostatistical methods to support implementation science in the HIV treatment ‘cascade,’ and studying concussions in partnership with the NCAA.
