Description of the SCC Biostatistics Shared Resource

The Biostatistics Core facility is a shared resource supporting consultation on biostatistics and epidemiology throughout the Siteman Cancer Center (SCC). The core will support cancer research conducted by the seven SCC Research Programs. The mission of the core is to ensure that experimental designs, study monitoring, and data analyses, take advantage of robust, efficient methods that reflect 'best practices' in biostatistics and epidemiology. The Core supports NIH-funded peer reviewed cancer grants; and enables pilot and small-scale studies to become part of successful applications for peer-reviewed funding.

LOCATION: Taylor Avenue Building, Suite 2400


As of April 7, 2008, the NIH requires investigators with a publication using Siteman (or other NIH-funded) shared resources to submit (or have submitted for them) their final, peer reviewed manuscripts to PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication, to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication. Many journals automatically submit these for authors, but Washington University also has assistance available through the Becker Medical Library. Please see or for more information.
