Biostatistics Shared Resource


The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is to promote excellence in cancer research by providing outstanding biostatistical support and collaboration to Massey members.

The BSR provides biostatistical support beginning in the initial experimental design stage to the presentation of research findings and, ultimately, in the submission of scientific publications. Biostatisticians also participate in the oversight of cancer center protocols in the Protocol Review and Monitoring System (PRMS) and monitoring committees. The collaborative nature of this work optimizes the shared resources' effectiveness, resulting in support from peer-reviewed grants.

In addition to collaboration, BSR faculty members also contribute through methodological research that applies directly to programmatic research at Massey and training investigators through seminars and individual sessions. The BSR Core also trains postdoctoral scientists and clinical fellows through the clinical research and biostatistics training track.
