The Victorian Centre for Biostatistics (ViCBiostat) aims to build the Australian biostatistical workforce and future leaders through a program of methodological research embedded in significant collaborative health and medical research.


ViCBiostat is a virtual centre comprising a collaboration between the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI), Monash University and The University of Melbourne; with senior, mid-career and postdoctoral biostatisticians and PhD students based at each of the institutions.

It provides a hub for methodological research through regular work-in-progress seminars and invited methodological seminars in biostatistics, as well as dedicated support for conference travel and other professional development for biostatistics postdocs and PhD students.

The centre is led by an executive committee comprising eight senior and mid-career academic biostatisticians.
