Research Director, Bob Jones University
Dr. Steve Figard earned a BS in Neurobiology from Cornell University, an MS in Chemistry from Northern Illinois University, and was finally ejected with a PhD in Biochemistry from Florida State University in 1984. After a two-year post-doc at Los Alamos National Laboratory, he escaped to Abbott Laboratories in Chicago, where he hid for nearly 26 years, developing automated in vitro diagnostic immunoassays. Most recently he deserted to the warmer climes of South Carolina, where he heads up Bob Jones University’s Cancer Research lab mentoring undergraduate biology majors through a true research experience using cancer biology.

Introduction to Biostatistics with JMP®
By Steve Figard
Presented in an easy-to-understand way, Introduction to Biostatistics with JMP® introduces undergraduate students in the biological sciences to the most commonly used (and misused) statistical methods that they will need to analyze their experimental data using JMP. It covers many of the basic topics in statistics using biological examples for exercises so that the student biologists can see the relevance to future work in the problems addressed.
