Postgraduate Teaching at the MRC Biostatistics Unit
The aim of the MRC Biostatistics Unit’s Knowledge Transfer Strategy is to ensure that suitable statistical methods, including those developed by the Unit, are widely recognised, appreciated, understood and used in the scientific community.
Members of the MRC Biostatistics Unit teach on five Master’s courses at the University of Cambridge. Several staff supervise, examine, lecture and organise modules in biostatistics, clinical trials and psychiatric epidemiology for the MPhils in Epidemiology and Public Health. Other contributions are to the MPhil in Computational Biology, the Master of Mathematics (Applied Statistics and Statistics in Medical Practice) and the MPhil in Translational Medicine and Therapeutics.

“Eight BSU scientists contributed to teaching “Statistics in Medical Practice” to University of Cambridge students in October/November 2014. Those involved were Shaun Seaman, Chris Jackson, Rebecca Turner, James Wason, Jack Bowden, Anne Presanis, Daniela De Angelis and Paul Birrell. Between us we gave five two-hour lectures on “Missing data”, “Multi-state models, illustrated in transplantation medicine”, “Meta-analysis in evidence-based medicine”, “Group-sequential designs in randomised trials” and “Infectious disease modelling”.”
