The purpose of the Biostatistics Core is to provide statistical support for the scientific projects and the cores in the Program Project.
- Provide biostatistical collaboration for clinical research projects. This includes all aspects of the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of the clinical studies of therapeutic interventions. Biostatistical support also extends to the protocol governing specimen collection from patients not involved in therapeutic protocols
- Provide biostatistical collaboration for the laboratory research studies. This includes all aspects of the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of the molecular, genetic, biochemical and immunological studies conducted on patient or murine samples
- Provide biostatistical assistance in the planning and conduct of exploratory analyses linking laboratory and clinical results in the CRC databases
- Provide a forum in which statisticians working in CLL can meet and share insights into the statistical issues of prognostic and predictive analyses in this disease, and address the issues which arise in designing CLL-specific phase I and phase II studies
