Who we are


The Biostatistics Core at the Bouvé College of Heath Sciences at Northeastern University was created to support advanced training, research, and collaborations related to biostatistics and health sciences.

The Core provides opportunities for students and faculty to engage in the exploration of the structure and application of statistical methods to a wide range of health and health-related projects.

Through the Biostatistics Core students and researchers have access to training in biostatistical methods and programming. 

Support for data analyses is also available through the Biostatistics Service Center.



Biostat Chats

We host a series of afternoon chats where students, faculty, and college researchers can informally discuss projects, methods, and applications.


This fall we will be offering a new series of talks looking at emerging methods and tools for working with health science data.


We offer a series of 1 to 2 hour workshops on using common statistical software packages to analyze data. Software presented includes R, STATA, SAS, and SPSS.
