Department of Medical Statistics, University Goettingen

Welcome to the Department of Medical Statistics




Dear visitors, guests and colleagues!


The activities of the Department of Medical Statistics include clinical cooperations that we see through from grant applications to publications, a biostatistical advisory service for doctoral students and early career scientists, research in statistical methodology and teaching. More detailed information on these topics can be found on this homepage under the corresponding headers.

The current organisational structure of the Department includes three working groups closely working together. These are "Computational Statistics" led by JProf. Dr. Sarah Friedrich, Statistical Methods for Clinical Trials led by Prof. Reinhard Hilgers and myself as well as "Biometry and Data Management in Clinical Trials" led by Thomas Asendorf forming the interface between the Department of Medical Statistics and the Clinical Trials Unit UMG and supports clinical trials in all aspects of biometry and data management. Furthermore, the Core Facility Medical Biometry and Statististical Bioinformatics is based at the Department.

Different main research areas with special expertise and experience have been established within the last years - as Nonparametric Statistics, Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses and Statistical Methods for Infectious Diseases .


Further details on the structure of the Department are given in the organisational chart.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
