Biostatisticians bring biostatistical expertise to the biology and life sciences fields. They work in public health, including epidemiology and nutrition; design medical trials and research studies; and apply biostatistical theories to genetic, ecological, and medical research. They are heavily employed in the scientific research and development, insurance, and pharmaceutical industries.
