Welcome to JABSOM Office of Biostatistics & Quantitative Health Sciences (BQHS)!

Aloha! Thank you for your interest in University of Hawaii JABSOM BQHS.

A strong research design and quantitative support play a critical role in the long-term success of clinical and translational research and education enterprises. Current research studies involve complex study design and generate complicated multivariate data, which require quantitative expertise. Extramural funding has also become increasingly competitive. Funding agencies and study sessions have started to focus more on whether the research design of a proposal is optimal and whether data analysis plan is statistically appropriate.

UH JABSOM BQHS has Ph.D-level and MS-level biostatisticians, bioinformaticians and database programmer to provide the quantitative expertise. We welcome you to visit us in person, submit your request online, or utilize our online self-help Biostatistics and Quantitative Health Sciences resources. Our faculty and staff are available to discuss your research projects with you, including hypothesis development, study design, database development and management, biostatistics and bioinformatics data analysis, and educational needs, as well as explore collaboration opportunities.
