Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics (CEBU)

Research area:  Population health

High-level expertise in data science underpinning evidence for better health in children and young people.

The Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit (CEBU) specialises in biostatistics, epidemiological methods, and data management. With co-funding from the University of Melbourne, we provide expertise and support to all researchers on the Melbourne Children's campus. We collaborate with a wide range of clinical and population health researchers and also conduct methodological research, both to develop and strengthen the biostatistical methods underpinning modern health research and to develop future leaders in data science. 

The group’s work is important across many clinical and health problems, because almost all modern research involving patients and children relies heavily on statistical methods, in order to design high-quality studies and interpret the resulting data appropriately.

The Murdoch Children's has developed a national profile in this area. We are a leading example of how internationally renowned biostatistical expertise can be developed and integrated with major health research programs. The group’s work on cutting-edge methods for handling missing data problems and modern causal inference has attracted international recognition.
