Biostatistics Shared Resource
The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is to promote excellence in cancer research by providing outstanding biostatistical support and collaboration to Massey members.
The BSR provides biostatistical support beginning in the initial experimental design stage to the presentation of research findings and, ultimately, in the submission of scientific publications. Biostatisticians also participate in the oversight of cancer center protocols in the Protocol Review and Monitoring System (PRMS) and monitoring committees. The collaborative nature of this work optimizes the shared resources' effectiveness, resulting in support from peer-reviewed grants.
In addition to collaboration, BSR faculty members also contribute through methodological research that applies directly to programmatic research at Massey and training investigators through seminars and individual sessions. The BSR Core also trains postdoctoral scientists and clinical fellows through the clinical research and biostatistics training track.
Functions of the Biostatistics Shared Resource Core
The Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is located in the Goodwin Research Laboratory, room 119, on VCU's MCV Campus. BSR Core staff also have offices in the Department of Biostatistics at One Capitol Square, seventh floor.
This Shared Resource is jointly supported by VCU Massey Cancer Center and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation.
