The Biostatistics and Data Management Core (BDMC)

Overview of Services

We are committed to collaborating with investigators to meet their studies’ unique biostatistics and data management needs to ensure that the answers to research questions are supported by valid, statistically sound data and results. Our team of highly motivated and experienced biostatisticians can assist you in the design of experiments, planning of clinical protocols, analysis and interpretation of data, and presentation and dissemination of results. Our data management team members have expertise in designing case report forms, developing databases, creating data management plans, developing metrics to report on study progress, and delivering high quality datasets for analysis.

We also offer free limited consulting for data management and statistical questions.

Our team offers the unique advantage of experience with the submission of a Biologics License Application (BLA). We are available to investigators seeking guidance with clinical trial start-up, oversight, and regulatory submission.
