Medical Research requires individuals who can understand the complex mathematical analyses involved in comparing treatments, patients, and designing research studies.
One of our group leads, Professor Sarah Walker, is a mathematician and medical statistician.
A common theme with the statisticians who work with us is that having done a degree in mathematics, they enjoy using their skill in mathematics to do research which can be directly useful, and help improve the treatment of patients.
Some examples of careers in medical statistics:
The statisticians that work with us perform many of the analyses that go into the science we do. They also do independent research in their own right. Some recent examples of work by our mathematicians:
