Center for Biostatistics Joins the Department for Biomedical Informatics 


​To improve the coordination and delivery of biomedical informatics and biostatistics services for the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and College of Medicine research community, The Ohio State University Center for Biostatistics will become an operating unit within the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI).

This move will provide members of the Center for Biostatistics with an academic home and will ensure the continued growth of innovative methodologies and support the opportunities in career development for members of the center.

Susan Geyer, PhD, will serve as interim director for the Center while we conduct a national search. Dr. Geyer has worked at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center since 2009. In this role, she will report to Philip Payne, PhD, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics. Dr. Geyer received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees and doctorate in statistics from American University. Her focus has been statistics and economics.

We want to thank David Jarjoura, PhD, for his leadership of the Center over the past eight years, and his commitment to support the OSUWMC research community. His work on behalf of the Center has provided the foundations for this next step to advance biomedical research at OSUWMC.​
