Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR)

Summary:

The Biostatistics Shared Resource provides scientific interpretation for all statistical analyses. All initial consultations are free. More extensive efforts may require additional funding depending on how much time is required.

The GeoSpatial Section provides expert consultation and collaboration for research projects in behavior, epidemiology, health services and other disciplines. (see link below), The primary mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is to improve the statistical aspects of cancer research at Dartmouth by providing expert statistical collaboration for research projects of Cancer Center members. Because every aspect of cancer research involves data, all research programs potentially may require the participation of the BSR. Areas of special faculty expertise include clinical trial design, longitudinal data, statistical methods for genomics and managing data, measurement error methods, nonlinear dose response modeling, quality of life data, decision sciences, cost effectiveness analysis, and diagnostic test assessment.

Faculty and staff offices are located on the 8th floor of the Rubin building at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). The BSR maintains an extensive statistical software library providing access to all major statistical analysis platforms. Server and network access are provided through Cancer Center administration, DHMC, and Dartmouth College. The BSR collaborates closely with other shared resources for project development and monitoring through the Office of Clinical Research, and the Integrative Biology and Experimental and Translational Models Shared Resources.
