Biostatistics Shared Resource

Statistics provides a foundation for designing, conducting and analyzing experiments and studies based on data subject to random variation. Consequently, biostatistical support is critical to many investigators at Cedars-Sinai, and biostatisticians play a fundamental role in both pre- and post-funding award stages of most research studies. The Biostatistics Shared Resource is available to study investigators for biostatistical consulting and related methodological research. It is recognized as a critical component of the research infrastructure at Cedars-Sinai and serves as a focal point from which institute investigators may draw statistical expertise for planning, management and analysis of their studies. Faculty and staff members also develop, test and implement various techniques of statistical analysis, including mathematical modeling, applicable to medical research. Types of research supported include clinical trials, translational research, epidemiology, and behavioral and basic science.

Our team uses state-of-the-art statistical research instrumentation. We provide training for personnel wanting to use similar software packages as part of ongoing education modules within various graduate programs at Cedars-Sinai.
