We have a collaborative biostatistical research role across many of the Kirby Institute’s programs and activities. We ensure the statistical design and analysis of clinical trials and epidemiological studies are to appropriate international standards. We also develop traditional paper-form and web-based databases for research studies and national surveillance activities.
The Biostatistics and Databases Program leads a number of large, observational cohort studies in HIV-positive adults and children in Australia and Asia. We also have an active mathematical modelling group, that models interventions aimed at preventing transmission of certain sexually transmissible infections including HPV, gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
We are also involved in linkage studies, including linkage of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and cohort studies to hospitalisation, cancer and death registries. These linkage studies help to develop our understanding of longer term outcomes and epidemiological patterns.
