About the Department

The mission of the Department of Biostatistics at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to impact the advancement of cures and prevention of pediatric catastrophic diseases through biostatistics and data science collaboration and research. Our vision is to become a global leader in biostatistics and data science in catastrophic pediatric diseases and to accelerate discoveries, treatments and quality of care among survivors.

We provide state-of-the-art biostatistical support to all research initiatives at St. Jude by designing and analyzing studies across the spectrum of laboratory research, early and late phase clinical trials, and late-effect and epidemiological studies. The efforts of the department are well supported by over 70 faculty, staff biostatisticians, postdoctoral fellows, computing personnel, and administrative staff.

The department also supports multi-institutional consortia such as: the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC) Operations, Biostatistics and Data Management Core, the Children's Oncology Group (COG) Brain Tumor Committee, and the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS).

Biostatistics Shared Resource

The department houses the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR), an institutional core resource to provide biostatistics collaboration and consulting services, such as study design, data management and statistical analysis.
