The Center for Biostatistics in AIDS Research (CBAR) is located within the Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. CBAR’s mission is to foster statistical science in clinical trials and other research studies in infectious diseases particularly HIV. CBAR pursues this mission by promoting innovative strategies for the design, data monitoring, analyses, and reporting of research studies, and by providing education and training relevant to statistical aspects of infectious disease research.

Statisticians lend critical expertise to infectious disease research: A positive HIV test result was once a near-certain death sentence, with more than 75% of people infected with the virus in the 1980s dying from AIDS. Today, HIV can be managed with antiretroviral medication, and a cure doesn’t seem quite so out of reach—thanks in part to a group of statisticians and epidemiologists at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
