The thematic network BIOSTATNET aims to link together Spanish researchers in biostatistics with an integrative, multidisciplinary, flexible, and open focus.
This is a pioneer network in Spain mainly consisting of 8 nodes leaded by statisticians from different universities with own research projects and teaching experience in biostatistical matters and working closely with biomedical researchers. BIOSTATNET gathers and represents the main lines of investigation of each of the nodes involved. Its main objectives are:

  • Coordinate research and teaching of biostatistics in Spain, allowing for an international projection;
  • Promote an adequate education in biostatistics;
  • Help to show its transparency and applicability in biomedicine.
