Biostatistics and Data Management Unit

HNRCA’s biostatistics and data management core service consults and assists in study design, implementation, and data analysis to support research activities with an emphasis on rigor, reproducibility and transparency.

We welcome partnering with HNRCA investigators on biostatistics and/or data management needs. See this table which lists the services available and indicates whether they are HNRCA-supported services (no cost recovery) or services provided through cost recovery.

To request a service or ask a question, visit our Weekly drop-in sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 2pm-3:30pm in Rooms 923 & 924

Information on Requesting Services
To request Statistical services, contact Senior Biostatistician Dr. Kathryn Barger to schedule a meeting to review the proposed project, needed support, and the study timeline.

To request Data Management services, contact Bioinformatics Specialist Gregory Matuszek to schedule a meeting to review the proposed project, needed support, and the study timeline.

If services are Cost Recovery Services (see Core Services List above), Sasha Scott will develop the corresponding budget and request the funding source (if project already awarded) or potential sponsor (if project is being submitted for funding consideration).

The Core Unit develops the budget based on the investigator’s planned study activities. All official budgets must be developed by the Biostatistics and Data Management Unit. The Unit will only honor official budgets. Once the budget and timeline are finalized between the investigator and the Core Unit, and the funding source is provided, the work can then be planned to begin in the Unit.

If the investigator expands the scope of the project, a new budget is required.
