to the website of the Institute for Medical Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics (IMBEI). Scientific advance is only achievable with appropriate methods. Therefore my main objective is to support medical research with our diverse methodical competence in the service of human health.

In addition to personalised medicine and the secondary use of data, the main focus of the Biostatistics/Bioinformatics Division includes consultations on the planning and evaluation of clinical studies. As an institute of the University Medical Centre of the Johannes Gutenberg University, we work together closely with the clinical facilities.

The Epidemiology Division conducts population-based observational studies in the areas of radiation epidemiology, health care research and paediatric epidemiology. The main emphases of the Informatics Division are data protection, electronic data transmission and hospital information systems. The Documentation Division takes on tasks concerning data management and data collection. Two cancer registries are located at the IMBEI: the German Childhood Cancer Registry and the Rhineland Palatinate Cancer Registry.

At the IMBEI, we work in an interdisciplinary team of about 80 dedicated employees that take on countless research and teaching tasks. As a facility of the University Medical Centre, the IMBEI is involved with the methodological training of medical students. In addition, the IMBEI offers a post-graduate and consecutive Master of Science in Epidemiology (MSE) programme.
