Biostatistics Shared Resources


Overview of Services

The Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center has established the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) to assist investigators associated with the Cancer Center to conduct and communicate research of the highest possible quality.
The primary activities of the Biostatistics Shared Resource include:

1) Statistical design for new studies 
2) Statistical analysis of data and consultation
3) Development of clinical research protocols.

The BSR has been involved in data analyses in a wide variety of projects, including genetic epidemiology studies, cancer etiology research, clinical studies to evaluate biological markers, assessment of diagnostic methods and treatment modalities, cancer clinical trials, and in vitro studies. Priority is given to Cancer Center members and cancer-related studies.

It is very important to the continued funding of the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) that the productive collaboration of CFCCC-supported Shared Resources is acknowledged in publications and presentations, and that resulting publications are processed by the National Institutes of Health Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) to obtain a PubMed Central reference number (PMCID), per NIH Public Access Policy.

Please visit the CFCCC website to learn more about Acknowledging the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and Shared Resources.
