Strategic Research Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (UEB)

Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (UEB)

The Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (UEB) is a support unit from the Scientific and Technical Support Area of the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Research (VHIR). The UEB staff is lead by Dr. Alex Sánchez, and includes advanced technicians in statistics and bioinformatics, with quite long experience in clinical and biomedical research support and training activities.

The main objectives of the UEB are:

  1. To provide statistical, methodological and bio-informatics support for clinical and biomedical research, mainly in our center but also to the rest of the community.
  2. To contribute to training in statistics and bioinformatics for clinical and biomedical research, by organizing workshops, seminars or courses and participating in formal training in the VHIR's area.
  3. 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.

ISO Cerification: The UEB is ISO-9001 certfied since 2016.
