As part of the Excellence Initiative – Research University Program at the Medical University of Gdańsk, a new core facility is being created – the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core Facility. The idea of the unit is to facilitate the work of research teams by increasing the scientific excellence of published results and submitted grant applications. The core facility’s key area of operation is to support the process of scientific research and clinical research in the field of biostatistics and bioinformatics, especially in the context of the Priority Research Areas implemented at the Research University as part of the Excellence Initiative. The Centre will employ biostatisticians and bioinformatics, whose work will strengthen interdisciplinarity in research conducted at the MUG.
Core facility will offer a wide range of services related to big data analysis. The profile will primarily include support for projects based on high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing (including single cell analysis), as well as other scientific initiatives that require processing of large amounts of data. Additionally, the activities of the Centre will include the use of AI in the processing of imaging data and the classification of patient samples.
One of the key initiatives of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core Facility is the Biostatistics Clinic, which is being created. It offers MUG’s employees and doctoral students the opportunity to discuss the optimal approach to statistical data analysis. The unit will provide researchers with professional support at every stage of research, from designing the measurement methodology, through data acquisition and analysis, to the final interpretation.
