The Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (UEB) was created in 2008 within the Research Institute of the Hospital Vall d'Hebron (VHIR) in order to promote the use and development of modern statistical and bioinformatics resources on research performed in its environment.
Nowadays, the Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit includes the former Support Unit in Methodology for Biomedical Research (USMIB) and, as part of the Scientific and Technical Support Area of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, has the mission to provide expert advice, services and training for clinical and biomedical research.
The main objectives of the UEB are:
To provide statistical, methodological and bioinformatics support for clinical and biomedical research, mainly in our center but also to the rest of the community.
To contribute to training in statistics and bioinformatics for clinical and biomedical research, by conducting its own courses and participating in formal training in the VHIR's area.
To carry out innovation and development activities in the field of statistics and bioinformatics, particularly in anything that could revert in an improvement of the procedures and services provided by the Unit.
