Biostatistics is a work-kit of tools and methods to collect, analyze, and interpret biological data and especially data relating to medicine. These methods allow you to quantify the uncertainty associated with simulation models, which are used to forecast the spread of infection/efficiency of a new medicine/significance of a particular human gene in a diseases control, etc. With the upsurge of Covid 19, the role of Biostatisticians in the response to the crisis is magnifying, ranging from mathematical and statistical modeling, over day-to-day monitoring, to scientific and government committee policymaking.

M&S Research Hub organizes comprehensive structured training for researchers, graduate students, practitioners, and scientists at all proficiency levels to teach foundations on biostatistical methods and the design of clinical trials and survival analysis. Similarly, the training will establish statistical and econometric techniques (and commands) to secure the correct implementation of interventions, and the assessment of their results.

It was excellent training for me. I think Dr. Arhsian is the best in his field. He is a well-qualified person. I will recommend this institute for all my colleagues if they need it

Excellent Training

After finishing the first module, I decided to to do all modules because the first one has opened my mind, because here in Zambia there is no university or college where they offer as full program they way you offer it, it only comes as a course to those who are doing economics.
