The YCCI Biostatistics and Study Design Core

This YCCI-based core provides the infrastructure and services needed to conduct translational research. The DERC's members benefit from this structure in a number of ways: 1) guidance on the efficient design and analysis of clinical research proposals, including the preparation of grant proposals and questionaires; 2) provision of consultative services regarding the design and analysis of research projects; 3) providing education and training for faculty, students and fellows; 4) development of new approaches and methods for the design and analysis of clinical research studies. The goal of the Biostatistics and Study Design Core is to enhance the design and analytical infrastructure particularly in the following areas: (1) genomics and proteomics; (2) genetics and genetic epidemiology; (3) design and analysis of clinical studies including randomized trials; (4) spatial analysis; (5) clinical epidemiology and (6) cost effectiveness and cost benefit analysis.
