The Center for Statistics has an international reputation in statistical research (both theoretical and applied). In the domain of mathematical statistics, research is carried out in a.o. the following fields: bootstrap methods, smoothing techniques, censored data, asymptotic theory. Research in applied statistics focuses on biostatistics (longitudinal data analysis, clustered data, missing data, multivariate methods, clinical trials, epidemiological studies) as well as bioinformatics and statistical genetics.
The fundamental research in mathematical and applied statistics is the corner-stone for a sound analysis of real-world problems, coming from a variety of fields; Examples are: registration and analysis of data from psychiatry, public health surveys, clinical trials (cancer, AIDS, hypertension,...), epidemiological research, risk factors when exposed to toxic substances in the environment, etc
