Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Shared Resource

The University of Colorado Cancer Center Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BBSR) provides quantitative and information science support for the planning, design, analysis and presentation of basic science, clinical and epidemiological investigations by Cancer Center members.


  • Consultation on study design (clinical and basic science, including gene expression arrays and proteomics experiments)
  • Consultation on sample size and power
  • Development of data collection, storage, and quality control procedures (basic science and clinical studies, protocol review and monitoring)
  • Data analysis, including genomic and proteomic data
  • Collaboration on manuscript and oral presentation preparation, and grant proposal development
  • The BBSR provides services at a greatly reduced rate for Cancer Center members. Therefore, we ask Cancer Center member investigators to include funding for biostatistics and bioinformatics support on grants and contracts that BBSR staff has been involved in, and to include BBSR staff as authors on publications.

    How to Use the Core:

    Your study's initial design and data collection strongly affect its analysis and interpretation. Please involve us during the design phase to we can help make sure your project is successful. Our work is usually done as part of protocol development for clinical trials or during project design for other cancer-related research.


    To get started, please contact Ed Bedrick for biostatistics and Ken Jones for bioinformatics:
  • Please submit a project registration form for your project:
  • Bioinformatics Project Registration
  • Biostatistics Project Registration
  • Once you submit your form, you will meet with one of our Core biostatisticians or bioinformaticians to present your hypothesis and goals.
  • We will help you put together a basic scope of work and general timeline and identify key collaborators to include.
  • We will work with you throughout your project.
  • If you have questions, please contact Ed Bedrick, director (biostatistics) or Ken Jones, co-director (bioinformatics).
