Biostatistics

The field of biostatistics is concerned with the collection and evaluation of data in the different life sciences. Specifically in drug research, biostatistics covers the statistical trial design and analysis of studies on the efficacy and safety of medicinal products. A biostatistical methodology provides efficient plans and analysis strategies that allow extrapolating valid conclusions to larger populations by way of samples, assesses these, and quantifies the uncertainty of the statements made on this basis.
