This consulting service is comprised of a broad collection of services used to identify research questions, construct hypotheses, design investigative studies and data collection strategies, conduct statistical analyses of data, and interpret findings. The Biostatistics and Epidemiology Consulting Service has a proven track record in attracting funding for Weill Cornell laboratories. The inclusion of the consulting service in a number of successful grant applications provides needed expertise to implement and conduct research projects in a cost effective manner. The existence of the consulting service not only strengthens grant proposals, increasing the likelihood of being funded, but also offers our investigators an alternative to using outside consultants.
The Biostatistics and Epidemiology Consulting Service is run by the Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology of the Department of Healthcare Policy and Research. [Please see the Division website for more information.]
