The CBC resides in the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics in the Colorado School of Public Health. Our goal is to facilitate the Department's collaborative mission. The CBC along with the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics strive to maintain adequate capacity and expertise for biostatistics consultation and to seed collaboration development with researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, its affiliates, and the surrounding community.
Our mission is to achieve scientific excellence by:
- fostering the understanding and implementation of biostatistical principles;
- providing reliable biostatistical expertise from research design to dissemination;
- building collaborative institutional and community partnerships;
- training the next generation of collaborative biostatisticians through practice based learning;
- advancing research through validation and development of new statistical approaches.
Learn more about our mission
After making a request, we will contact you via e-mail to schedule an in-person meeting to develop a scope of work.
Scope of Work Developed
At your scope of work meeting, be prepared to discuss the science underpinning your research, your specific study hypotheses,
measurement tools, timelines, and your budget for the work. Note, although we are a service center with hourly rates, many individuals qualify for highly subsidized rates (see strategic partners).
After this initial meeting you will be matched with a faculty member or student based on expertise needed and your timeline. You may contact the biostatistician directly once the scope of work is signed by you. After this point, you should expect routine communication regarding the progress of your project until completion.
We strongly recommend contacting us at least 6 weeks prior to any deadline. This usually allows enough time for your research to be understood and your biostatistics partner to have ample time to investigate the design, perform analyses and disseminate the results.
As always, the Project Manager and Directors are always available to answer any questions during the life cycle of your project.
