Siteman Biostatistics Shared Resource – Services

Biostatistical consulting in the planning, conduct, analysis and reporting of:

  • Clinical trials. The Siteman Biostatistics Shared Resource (SBSR) core consults on and reviews all clinical protocols activated by the SCC 
  • Epidemiologic and population-based studies and studies in somatic genetics and the risk of cancer
  • Experiments in the biology of cancer, including genomic experiments and laboratory and animal studies
  • Translational research studies with combined measurements on clinical and biological parameters
  • Advice and support in the preparation of grant applications of SCC members
  • Scientific computing for data analysis and scientific graphics necessary for analyses of epidemiological, clinical, basic science and genomic studies
  • Advice and consultation to the Quality Assurance Office for Clinical Trials (QACT) on efficient and accurate database design and management of clinical research data
  • Computer support for the clinical research database
  • Education for members of Siteman Cancer Center in the areas of study design, data collection, computerization, and statistical methods for laboratory, clinical and population based studies

In order to better manage statistical work on projects with external deadlines, the SBSR core requires that the faculty and staff:

  • Be informed of new P01 and SPORE grant submissions at least 6 months before the deadline
  • Be informed of new R01 and K series grant submissions at least 1 month before the deadline
  • Be provided with data sets for an analysis for an abstract submission (e.g., for ASCO, AACR, ASH, ASTRO) at least 1 month before the deadline
  • Will only work on analysis and reporting for abstract presentations (e.g., for ASCO, AACR, ASH, ASTRO meetings) if the Core was notified at the time of abstract submission and the relevant statistician was given enough time to comment on the abstract at the time of submission
