The Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology (DBE) faculty collaborates extensively with other Divisions, Departments, Colleges, Programs, Units, Projects and individuals across the MUSC Campus, South Carolina, the United States and abroad. Our investigators work side by side with scientists and medical professionals to design studies, manage data, conduct data analysis and maximize data usage for informed conclusions. We also provide extensive educational support and opportunities to our PhD and MS students as well as scholars in many different disciplines, including medical students, basic science doctoral candidates, nursing and health administration students, and many others.
