Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

The purpose of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics shared resource is to provide a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary collaboration in the design and analysis of clinical, preclinical and epidemiologic investigations as well as experiments that involve data from high throughput technologies. These collaborations lead to the application and development of innovative statistical methodology and summarization of results to address cancer research.

The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics shared resource has an overall goal to provide statistical consultation and collaboration on the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of all Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University investigators' research activities.

The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics support is critical to most all of the peer-reviewed funded investigators at  Winship, and both fields play a fundamental role in pre- and post-funding award stages of cancer research studies. Our shared resource is recognized as an essential element of research infrastructure at Winship by way of collaboration and consultation with other Winship investigators in the design, conduct and analysis of cancer-related clinical, preclinical and epidemiological investigations.

Capabilities and Services

Services include:

  • Provide consultation and collaboration regarding study design (e.g., validity of design, feasibility of meeting objectives, sample size, projection of study duration).
  • Make recommendations concerning key infrastructure (data management and computer systems support.
  • Conduct data analysis, prepare reports and assist with manuscript writing.
  • Develop novel biostatistics and bioinformatics methods.
  • Review proposals for clinical cancer-related studies within the context of the clinical trials review committee.

Collaborations within Winship and in the larger university community are supported by collaborative grants or fee for service.
