Start Working with Us Early and Always!

  • Early in proposal development stage is the best
  • Studies have problems, that is OK
    • Definitely consult with a statistician before making changes and hoping for the best
    • If biostatisticians are active collaborators on the project, they can sometimes see trouble ahead and help to prevent or alleviate it
  • Involve us in database design and data management approach
  • We are an important part of the DSMB
  • We love to do complex analyses but in reality that is a very small part of how we spend our time on a project
