The Division of Biostatistics in the Department of Public Health Sciences
supports basic and clinical research and conducts
research on biostatistical methodology. We provide support to investigators
throughout the School of Medicine, and other campus units.
General guidelines for working with faculty from the Division of
Biostatistics are as follows:

This will give us adequate time to review your study aims, provide
feedback, and assist in the preparation of the analytic plan
for your project. We will also work with you to determine the level
of biostatistical services you will need, whether as part of a modular
budget or as a percentage of time from a biostatistician and/or programmer.
If you will need a named biostatistician collaborator, we will help
to identify a specific individual with appropriate background.
2. We will provide
you with a budget and budget justification for biostatistical services,
up-to-date biosketches and other support information, as well as information
on the resources available through the Division to support your project. View UCD Biostatistic Effort Guidelines.
