Directed by Elizabeth Juarez-Colunga, PhD

About the Program

The Core’s mission is to provide collaborative support in all areas of biostatistical outcomes research expertise, including study design, database design and data management, and statistical analysis of data.   

The Biostatistics and Analysis Core is made up of both Doctoral and Master’s level biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and data analysts. Areas of expertise include pragmatic trial design (cluster randomized designs, stepped wedge design, and multilevel modeling), as well as missing data in longitudinal studies, repeated events models, database design, and SAS programming. 


  • To provide excellence in quantitative methods for health services and outcomes research

  • To develop new and innovative analytic methods through participation in collaborative, interdisciplinary research, especially as they pertain to health outcomes and implementation research

  • To help researchers in the application of appropriate statistical methods, using existing statistical methods in innovative ways, and developing new methods, when needed

  • To maintain and further enhance strong mentoring programs for the training of clinical researchers who can conduct research in clinical translational and outcomes research;
