MRC Elsie Widdowson Laboratory

Nutritional Biostatistics Team

The Nutritional Biostatistics Team aims to provide rigorous and effective use of statistical methods relevant to nutrition research. The main focus for the Team is the National Diet and Nutrition Survey Rolling Programme (NDNS RP), undertaking statistical analysis of complex survey data in collaboration with the NDNS RP consortium and Public Health England.  We also provide statistical advice to MRC EWL staff members on the planning, study design, statistical analysis and interpretation of findings from research projects.

The Nutritional Biostatistics Team has expertise in the principles of experimental design, the use of general and generalised linear models and mixed models, fitting linear and nonlinear models to data and modelling using repeated measures techniques.
