CHICAS (www.lancaster.ac.uk/fhm/med/chicas) conducts research on the development of novel statistical and epidemiological methods and their applications. The methodological strengths of staff are in spatial statistics and longitudinal data analysis. The applied research spans a wide range of clinical settings both in the UK and internationally with collaborations in Europe, Africa, North and South America.
Research topics can focus on either methodological development, substantive application, or a blend of the two. Students will be allocated a space in a shared office and will be encouraged to attend and make presentations at scientific meetings both within the UK and overseas.
