Biostatistics Consulting Group

The Department of Biostatistics and the Data Coordinating Center at Boston University School of Public Health offer statistical support through the Biostatistics Consulting Group (BCG). This service provides statistical support to researchers at the Boston University Medical Campus and the larger Boston University community.

The BCG is staffed by members of the Biostatistics faculty who work with and supervise advanced doctoral students in the Biostatistics PhD program.

Researchers interested in utilizing the BCG statistical services should contact us by filling in the online request form. Once a request is submitted, a member of the BCG will respond to the request promptly. An initial consultation to determine the needs of the investigator is provided at no cost. Services are then based on an hourly rate of $150.
