Biostatistics and Study Design

Biostatistical and epidemiological support for clinical and translational research is provided through the Yale Center for Analytical Sciences (YCAS).

Supported by YCCI, the School of Public Health, and Yale Cancer Center, YCAS expertise and resources are available to all departments and schools across the medical campus.

The YCAS team can aid researchers in a wide variety of ways, from pre-design advice to manuscript preparation and revision. They will ensure that research is being conducted using sound analytical principles and practice by helping to develop testable hypotheses ensuring adequate sample size as well as appropriate analytical methods and proper interpretation of analyses. YCAS faculty and staff interact with clinical investigators in the following ways:

  • Collaboration
  • Short-term consultation
  • Data analysis
  • Education and training
