New Bio-Statistical Support Information

The Applied Statistics Lab (ASL) is now available to enhance statistical support for both faculty and students. The ASL will provide researchers with a centralized location to seek advice for planning studies and implementing analysis. One of the advantages of centralized support is that requests requiring less statistical sophistication may be handled by a junior RA and more complicated requests may be triaged to a faculty member with specific expertise.

It is likely that Catherine Starnes (now a senior RA) will continue to work on projects for CHS as she did last year. Heather Bush, Ph.D., will continue her supervision of CHS projects and will ensure that the statistical needs of the college are met.

Effective immediately, please send all bio-statistical requests directly to Candace Brancato.
