Biostatics Consulting Laboratory

The Biostatics Consulting Laboratory provides the scientific community with support for the application of statistical methods in the field of epidemiology.

Epidemiological studies supplement and sometimes inspire clinical and laboratory studies. They also help paint a more accurate picture of the factors that influence individual and population health.

Among other things, epidemiological research investigates the role environment, lifestyle habits, and genetic factors play in the etiology of prostate cancer and other chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. 

The Biostatics Consulting Laboratory provides a range of services to the scientific community, including:

  • Planning analytical studies
  • Calculating sample sizes
  • Choosing the most suitable approach for entering and analyzing data
  • Carrying out statistical analysis
  • Presenting and interpreting results

Our expertise and technical services are also available for external collaborations and research and development contracts.
