Quantitative Methods Core

The Quantitative Methods Core (QMC), within the Division of Biostatistics and Health Sciences Research in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences, was founded to provide University of Massachusetts Medical School investigators with clinical research support in biostatistics, experimental design, and data management.


We sponsor a seminar series focused on statistical issues of general interest.  Seminars occur on the first and third Tuesdays of the month during the Academic Year (September to May).
