"We use data to make a difference in human lives."
The Human Studies Lab is a teaching and research computer laboratory conducting medical and other public health research, housed within the Department of Statistics and Analytical Sciences. We use high speed computers in a secure environment to conduct simple and complex analyses on small and big data. All analysts in the lab are HIPPA and Human Studies certified. We work with multiple faculty, as well as internal and external collaborators, clinicians, and clients.
Students from all levels actively assist with the research within courses and as research assistants. The employment rate for students leaving the lab is close to 100%, with virtually all of them attributing some of their employment success to working in the lab.
We have published papers in prestigious journals including Vaccine, Pediatrics and Neonatology. Most of our recent publications include student authors. Inclusion of students in research and training students is a primary goal of the lab.
