Data management and biostatistics case team has been engaged on the process of creating, sharing, using and managing research data of the institute, as an integrated task flow.

This case team plays key role in the outstanding researches held in AHRI from methodology to analysis. With our highly experienced and trained biostatisticians, inaccuracy of data analysis and interpretation is never tolerated. The proposed methodology of data gathering is thoroughly evaluated and modified in ways that clear and reliable output is to be generated.

Major Area of the Research

* Clinical Trial, immunology and molecular biology, epidemiological and translational research

* Consult student and researchers on statistical methodology, statistical data analysis and output interpretation again we support on the preparation of statistical analysis plan.
