The Biostatistics Consulting Service can handle projects requiring expertise in any area of statistics. We can help with your study from the planning stages to the final write-up.


  • Design: we can help you to choose an experimental design that will allow you to answer the research question most efficiently. Clinical trials, surveys all need special considerations.
  • Sample size determination: having too much or too little data is a waste of resources. We can help you plan how much data you need to collect so that your study can evaluate your hypothesis.
  • Grant proposal preparation: we can write the sections on the statistical analysis plan and sample size considerations.

Data collection

  • Randomization: we can develop and implement an appropriate randomization scheme.
  • Data management: we can advise you on database design, and even help you set it up.
  • Data entry


Statistical modeling, data analysis and interpretation: we will help you choose the appropriate analysis methods, and carry them out if you wish. We can also help you interpret the results in the context of your research.


  • Reports: we can write ready-to-publish description of the statistical methods used, prepare summary tables.
  • Plots: we can design and produce publication quality plots that communicate your message effectively.
