Established in 1959, the UCLA Department of Biostatistics is a leading center of expertise for many and diverse areas of research in the theory, methodology and applications of biostatistical methods. Our research programs in Bayesian methods, causal inference, genetics, hierarchical models, HIV/AIDS, longitudinal data analysis, phylogeny, spatial statistics and geographical information systems, survival analysis, and optimal design are well-respected nationally and internationally.

The Department maintains an online working paper series through the University of California eScholarship platform (a service of the Publishing Group of the California Digital Library). To access these papers, visit the UCLA Biostatistics eScholarship page.
