Please submit the Biostatistics Job Request Form. Once your form has been received you will be contacted by one of our biostatisticians to schedule an appointment.
A successful collaboration between a researcher and a biostatistician depends on good communication. We recommend at least one in-person meeting to discuss your project. After that, depending on the difficulty of the study, we may need to meet in person other times in addition to phone and/or email conversations. We generally communicate by phone or email. However, clarification of the research question, discussion of the results, or interpretation of the analysis often requires an in-person meeting.
You should be ready to discuss your research goals, related questions and your project's deadlines. Please bring any research paper relevant to the study and your HIC or ACC approval letter (if the project is already approved). Make a biostatistics job request.
It depends on the complexity of your project and our current work load. We work on a first come, first serve basis but timing is also dependent on deadlines, complexity of the study, cleanliness and completeness of the data, and promptness of your feedback to us.
We will gladly help you with the statistical design and plan of your study. We can help you with guidelines on how to set up your database to record your data. Take a look at our comprehensive list of biostatistic services provided.
