Biostatistics and the King's Clinical Trials Unit undertake much collaborative and applied statistical research spanning therapeutic trials, experiments and observational studies. Methodologies of current interest include statistical learning applied to imaging, biological and psychological marker data, measurement, stratified medicine and biomarker trials.


Graduate research students work closely with their supervisors and enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. They also liaise with other members of staff with relevant research interests and are encouraged to attend and participate in departmental research presentations and other Institute seminars. There is a full induction for new graduate students on commencing their studies. Each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer; facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs.
