++Welcome ++Department of Biostatistics ++Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
The School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University is pleased to announce the creation of a new Department of Biostatistics. Vanderbilt has made a major new funding commitment to build a world-class department that will include a doctoral level Ph.D. program. Chaired by Frank E. Harrell, Jr., the new department has exceptional institutional support from a medical center that is currently 16th in U.S. News and World Reportís 2002 rankings of research-oriented medical schools, and has seen a sharp rise in NIH and other grant funding. The Vanderbilt School of Medicine has a strong basic, clinical, and health services research program. The Dean and other senior medical school faculty are committed to providing outstanding collaborative support in biostatistics to clinical and basic scientists and to developing a graduate program in biostatistics that will train outstanding collaborative scientists and will focus on the methods of modern applied statistics. The biostatistics faculty sincerely thank the following leaders of the medical center who had the vision to create the new department: Dean Steven Gabbe, Vice-Chancellor Harry Jacobson, Health Services Research Director Robert Dittus, and Cancer Center Director Harold Moses.

The department currently has 8 PhD faculty members and plans to double in size over the next two years, continuing to add a significant number of faculty and staff biostatisticians after that. Besides a graduate program, a statistical data coordinating center will be created. We are excited about the future and seek outstanding biostatisticians who will help us to bring our goals to fruition.
