Biostatistics Center’s New Website Showcases Practice-changing Research

The Biostatistics Center (BSC) at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) recently launched a new website to showcase its world-class research, mission and vision for the future.

The BSC, founded in 1972, has long been a globally renowned leader in practice-changing clinical trials and biostatistical research. Research studies conducted by the BSC have been recognized in reports to the White House and U.S. Congress, featured in national media stories, named the #1 advance in medicine by the Harvard Health Letter, received the Trial of the Year Award and resulted in more than 60 publications in the New England Journal of Medicine. The BSC has a staff of approximately 120, including more than 40 biostatisticians and epidemiologists.

The new website highlights research projects conducted by the BSC, including projects on diabetes, maternal-fetal medicine, and infectious diseases. The BSC often serves as the coordinating center for clinical trials, observational studies and diagnostic studies, collaborating with the clinical investigators on the study design, monitoring, analyses, and reporting. Information about the BSC’s education and training initiatives, statistical methodology research, and current research focus on patient-focused outcomes is also featured.

Director Scott Evans, MS, PhD, is an internationally recognized expert in clinical trials, infectious diseases and biostatistics. Since joining Milken Institute SPH in 2018, Evans has worked to create new interdisciplinary collaborations and projects to elevate the BSC’s expertise.

“The Biostatistics Center is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, highlighting our 47-year history of conducting transformative scientific research,” Evans said. “The Center is excited about the prospect of developing new collaborations with faculty from the Milken Institute SPH and other George Washington University institutions to improve public health and clinical practice.”
