# Medical Statistics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Non-European Students in St Andrews

### Exploring synergies between statistical ecology and statistical genomics

Research Group: Division of Statistics
While superficially different, these two areas of research share several questions in common (How many species? How many of each species? How are the species distributed spatially? How should we sample?) that differ fundamentally only in whether the species in question are flora and fauna or nucleic acids and proteins. Read more

### Understanding the uncertainty in the decomposition of cancer gene or protein expression data

Research Group: Division of Statistics
Many tools exist that will take the expression profile of a tumour sample and decompose that signal into components arising from different tissue types (e.g. Read more

### Propagation of uncertainty for signatures of mutational processes

Research Group: Division of Statistics
There is a trend, especially in cancer research, to i) take a set of DNA mutations ii) cross-categorize them by patient and mutational characteristic and iii) decompose the resulting counts matrix into two sets of vectors – one set representing the mutational impact of specific mutagens and one set representing the exposure of individuals to those mutagens.

### Identifying complex spatio-temporal biomarkers of brain diseases

Research Group: Division of Statistics
Bayesian models today are providing the tools to explore the complexity of brain architecture. Therefore, there is a crucial need for leading researchers with an in-depth comprehension of the current challenges in neuroscience and the quantitative skills to develop cutting-edge solutions.

### Statistical ‘omics on graphs

Research Group: Division of Statistics
The field of statistical genomics (and related omics) is rapidly accepting that graphical models have a role to play in addressing the complexity of the molecular systems being investigated. Read more
