Biostatistics Core Facility (DF/HCC)

Director: Catalano, Paul, Sc.D.

Core Summary:

"The Biostatistics Core facility is a shared resource supporting consultation on biostatistics and epidemiology throughout the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC). The mission of the core is to ensure that experimental designs, study monitoring and data analyses take advantage of robust, efficient methods that reflect 'best practices' in biostatistics and epidemiology; to support NIH-funded peer reviewed grants that do not contain salary support for statisticians; and to enable pilot and small scale studies to become part of successful applications for peer-reviewed funding."

These services are available to Dana-Farber / Harvard Cancer Center members only. The Biostatistics Core is located across several of the member institutions of the DF/HCC. To contact the Core, please email or call the statistician associated with your disease site.

  • Brigham and Women's Hospital
