Biostatistics & Epidemiology

​​​In the Biostatistics and Epidemiology Group, we analyse data collected from different types of research projects and help our colleagues, basic scientists and clinical researchers, in the planning of their studies.  

Our research activities fall into three groups:


Statistical Genetics 

With the aim of mapping genes to diseases, we analyse data from genetic studies on DNA of individuals from the general population, as well as patients affected by a variety of chronic diseases. Our research is particularly focused on cardiovascular, renal and neurological diseases. With the aim of improving the quality of our analyses, we also perform methodological work to evaluate statistical methods currently used to analyse certain types of genetic data and to develop novel approaches whenever necessary.



We provide the methodological expertise in the planning of epidemiological studies aimed at identifying genetic, lifestyle and environmental risk factors for common chronic diseases. Our main involvement in epidemiological research is in the context of the CHRIS study and patient oriented research in the Neuro- and Cardiovascular medicine field.


​Medical Statistics

We collaborate with doctors on clinical research projects aimed at improving the diagnosis and the prognosis of diseases in the fields of cardiovascular and neurological medicine. We also offer a Clinical Research Support service to doctors working in the province of Bolzano, aimed at providing support to problems encountered in the planning and statistical analysis of their studies, as well as training on research methodology​
