Announcement: In accordance with the recommendation to work remotely, the CTSI Biostatistics Drop-In Sessions are canceled until further notice. Please submit a request for biostatistics consulting here. Dr. Howard Cabral and Dr. Janice Weinberg will respond to your request as soon as possible.

The CTSI’s Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD) program provides researchers with comprehensive support in designing and carrying out research at the design, implementation, and analysis stages. As biostatistics assistance ranks among the top requests for CTSA services, BERD has generated a portfolio of solutions for the most common needs to ensure participation in the earliest stages of study development.

  • BERD consulting services and collaboration are available to all BU investigators free of charge for the first hour.  Junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and residents are eligible for additional consultation depending upon the nature and scope of the project. This, however, does not include consultation on student projects beyond an initial consultation.  We will assist in connecting students to student analysts from graduate programs at Boston University in Biostatistics and Statistics.
