Biostatistics Shared Resource

The Biostatistics Shared Resource provides statistical support to basic scientists, clinical investigators, behavioral scientists and epidemiologists involved in cancer research. The purposes of the Biostatistics Shared Resource are to:

  • Provide statistical support to cancer investigators for the design of studies, analysis of data, quality control, manuscript preparation and development of grant proposals.
  • Adapt, develop and validate novel statistical methodologies to address emerging approaches in ongoing cancer research.
  • Facilitate interactions within the Hollings Cancer Center by participating in project development meetings with program leaders and other shared resource directors.
  • Serve on Hollings Cancer Center protocol review and monitoring committees to provide critical input into proposed and ongoing internal and external clinical trials.
  • Provide ongoing education in statistical methods and approaches for faculty, fellows, residents and staff.
