The CTSI-CN provides funds to support statistical consultation, analysis, and proposal development. The CTSI-CN Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) module includes the CNMC Division of Biostatistics and Study Methodology (DBSM) and the George Washington University Biostatistics and Epidemiology Consulting Service (BECS). The team of faculty and staff also support the education component of BERD through courses, seminars and online presentations. The Co-Directors of BERD are James Bost, PhD, Division Chief of DBSM, and Sam Simmens, PhD, Director of BECS.
All requests for services need to be submitted through the SPARC request portal. The link is provided below and details on how to submit a request can be found on the DBSM website.
As part of our BERD funded efforts, all requestors can be provided with up to four hours of free support. Additional free support can be provided on a case-by-case basis especially for proposal development or for K-awardees. See the DBSM home page for additional pricing options.
