We particularly seek individuals with research experiences in the general area of bioinformatics, including genetics, (epi)genomics, metabolomics, and other omics research.

Faculty engage in diverse methodological research areas with specific motivation from an equally broad array of public health focus areas, including Alzheimer’s disease, infectious diseases, cancer, cardiovascular and renal disease, epidemiological surveillance, and environmental and mental health. The department participates in the Georgia Clinical and Translational Science Alliance, serves as the Data Coordinating Center for several NIH clinical trials, and operates the Biostatistics Collaborative Core. The department offers a doctoral graduate program in Biostatistics from the Laney Graduate School of Arts and Science and master’s degree programs in Biostatistics and Public Health Informatics from the Rollins School of Public Health. A concentration in bioinformatics, imaging, and genetics (BIG) is available at the doctoral level.
