Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the website of the Karl E. Peace Center for Biostatistics and Survey Research. The center provides biostatistical consulting within the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health (JPHCOPH), Georgia Southern University.

The goals of the center are to function as a technical operations support center to Georgia Southern University and to the external community engaged in health related research; particularly in the areas of public health intervention trials and pharmaceutical drug, device, or biologics research and development. Support and services provided address all phases of the research process, including research planning (experimental or research design, research objective, sample size determination, data collection form design, protocol development, etc.), statistical simulation and computing, data management, statistical analysis, interpretation of the results, and report/manuscript development. The center also provides specialized courses, such as biostatistical aspects of the research, development and regulation of pharmaceuticals.

We support The Master of Public Health degree with an emphasis in Biostatistics and the Doctorate of Public Health degree in Biostatistics. The primary aim of the programs is to prepare students in practical and computational aspects of design and analysis of experiments conducted in public health environments and in the research and development of pharmaceutical products useful in the prevention and treatment of disease. Clinical trial support is a major focus. Graduates of the programs can have exciting and rewarding employment opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, government and public health agencies (FDA, CDC, state and local), academia and research organizations.

We look forward to meeting with you to discuss ways that we may be able to assist you in your research. Thank you for your interest in our center.
