Biostatistics is a Shared Resource staffed by PhD faculty (Xiaopan Yao, Dan Zelterman and Peter Peduzzi) and MS trained biostatisticians from the Yale Center for Analytical Sciences (YCAS). The Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) has the primary purpose of supporting basic science, clinical research, and translational research conducted at Yale Cancer Center (YCC).
The Biostatistics Shared Resource provides assistance in designing, monitoring, and reporting of investigator-initiated clinical trials at YCC. Interim analysis and final analysis are preplanned and conducted by the BSR to ensure data are collected and evaluated with statistical rigor. This Shared Resource has also collaborated with investigators in the planning and analysis of laboratory studies. The staff has extensive experience in study design issues such as statistical blocking techniques and factorial experiments, and statistical modeling, especially for longitudinal data and categorical data.
Faculty at the Biostatistics Shared Resource assumes responsibilities for committees at Yale Cancer Center, including Protocol Review Committee (PRC), Steering Committee, and Data and Safety Monitoring Committee.Contact
