The Graduate Group in Epidemiology and Biostatistics (GGEB) is responsible for developing and administering the PhD degree programs in epidemiology and biostatistics as well as the MS program in biostatistics. The PhD programs train individuals to be rigorous and independent academic investigators, able to develop, apply and extend biostatistical and epidemiological methodology to address questions in biomedical research. The objective of the MS program is to train individuals in the theory and applications of statistical methods, especially as applied to problems in the health sciences.  

The GGEB is part of the Biomedical Graduate Studies Program (BGS) in the Perelman School of Medicine, and is comprised of university faculty with interests in biostatistics and epidemiology. The Graduate Group is closely affiliated with the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics (DBEI) and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and  Biostatistics (CCEB).
