About Biostatistics

We collaborate with and provide consultations for investigators in biomedical research.

We work with investigators to efficiently identify unmet statistical design and methodological needs, and develop new design and analysis methodologies to resolve roadblocks encountered in cutting-edge biomedical research conducted at UNC-Chapel Hill and other institutions.

We offer biostatistical collaboration, statistical methodology research, study coordination and data management solutions for multi-site studies, and education in various topics relevant to biomedical researchers. We disseminate biostatistical tools to researchers through the following programs:

Biostatistics Collaboration

  • Statistical consulting and collaborative services on design and analysis in planning proposed studies
  • Assistance with protocol development and review
  • Biostatistical input to manuscript preparation, including journal submissions
  • Power and sample size calculations and biostatistics input to grant preparation
