The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource is to collaborate in the design, oversight, implementation, analysis, publication, and reporting of scientific studies by Roswell Park faculty and staff. This includes articulating study objectives and hypotheses, grant writing, conceiving appropriate cost-effective designs and models for achievement of study objectives, assuring that modern and appropriate statistical methods are used, monitoring interim and final analyses, and co-authoring abstracts and manuscripts.
The expertise within the Resource spans the full range of biostatistics (from preclinical studies to clinical trials, epidemiology, and diagnostic tests), molecular epidemiology, and statistical genetics and genomics.
The Biostatistics Shared Resource includes expertise in statistical genetics and genomics, and also collaborates closely with the Bioinformatics Shared Resource. Collaborative projects frequently span these three areas — biostatistics, genetics and genomics, and bioinformatics — and the two Shared Resources work together in addressing the often overlapping scientific questions under study.
The Resource is fully ingrained in the scientific collaborative process with CCSG members throughout the Institute.
