The Department of Biostatistics is dual-governed by the colleges of Public Health and Health Professions and Medicine and is now primarily located in the new state-of-the-art Clinical and Translational Research Building (CTRB), occupying 6,700 square feet of the fifth floor. The Department has a second campus location in Dauer Hall and off-campus space leased at 6011 NW 1st Place. Six full-time staff members provide the academic and departmental functions. The department has two “smart” conference rooms including a large digital at-screen, a computer that is web-linked, and a conference phone as well as collaboration areas for informal research collaboration meetings. CTRB is the headquarter of the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The building houses patient-oriented research venues for the Institute on Aging and CTSI. It has approximately 120,000 gross square feet in three wings and houses many different units, including CTSI, Institute on Aging, UF Clinical Research Center, Department of Aging and Geriatric Research, Department of Biostatistics, Department of Epidemiology, and Department of Health Outcomes and Informatics.
Dr. Qiu (Core Leader), Dr. Bacher (investigator), and Mr. Yipeng Wang (graduate research assistant) will use their regular offices at the CTRB building for this project. They have access to public printers, copying machines, and other facilities. The other investigator (Dr. Daniels) has his regular office space in Room 102C of the Griffin-Floyd Hall.
