Core B: Biostatistics
Director: J. Philip Miller
The Biostatistics Core provides resources to assist in the planning, conduct and analysis of the proposed research in such a way that quantitative analyses are appropriate and illuminating. The Core also assists in the dissemination of appropriate information both within and external to the SPORE and the Siteman Cancer Center (SCC). The Core is staffed by a dedicated biostatistician for each of the 4 projects. In addition a designated faculty member is devoted to collaborations concerning specialized bioinformatics issues. The Biostatistics Core will serve as a resource and collaborator for the four main projects proposed in this application, Career Development Program and Developmental Research Program projects and the SPORE Cores.
