Biostats books

The Siteman Biostatistics Shared Resource (SBSR) facility is a shared resource core supporting consultation on biostatistics and epidemiology. The facility supports cancer research through experimental designs, study monitoring and data analyses. The faculty and staff utilize efficient methods that reflect the “best practices” in biostatistics and epidemiology. Examples of SBSR core work include: NIH-funded peer reviewed cancer grants and pilot and small-scale studies to become part of successful applications for peer-reviewed funding.
