The Biostatistics Laboratory is a core facility that provides collaborative statistical support to BSD and other investigators engaged in medical and translational science research. This includes biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design. We encourage investigators to contact us at an early stage in their planning. Please use the tabs at the top of this page to:
Most projects will require longer-term collaboration and therefore the "Research Support Request" tab should be accessed. This includes assistance with grant proposal preparation, design or analysis of clinical trials, pilot study design and planning*, sample size calculations**, statistical analysis beyond basic descriptive statistics, or analysis of large datasets.
The Biostatistics Clinic has been established to provide free, short-term statistical consultation. This could include:
Staffed by members of the Biostatistics Laboratory, the Clinic is currently held on Tuesdays with one-hour time slots available. Appointments are required and can be made by selecting the ("Clinic Appointments") tab. This service is funded in part by the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine (CTSA) to lower barriers and to accelerate clinical and translational research.
The Biostatistics Laboratory is located in the Medical Center on the 3rd floor of the Mothers Aid Research Pavilion (MARP - R-corridor). This can only be accessed from the staircase next to the Student Care Center. The nearest hospital entrance is the Goldblatt Lobby. A map is available at "Biostat Lab Map".
