As scary to some people as they are hard to spell correctly! Yet biostatistics and epidemiology are essential to how clinical data is analysed. Not simply after-the-event add-ons, but determining the design and analysis of all the data that is collected. These fields have experts able to assist researchers, but without a good understanding of the basic principles of biostatistics and epidemiology, dialogue about the processes involved is difficult. A good grounding in this area facilitates group dynamics in research and provides a critical foundation for quality research.
