Biostatistics & Research Design - How to Access Statistical Assistance
FACULTY should contact Dr. Xie (N101-9, 335-7214, firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding new projects and grant proposals, and he will assign responsibilities for these new efforts.
STUDENTS should contact Dr. Qian (N101-4, 335-7202, email@example.com).
We also request that faculty mentors plan to meet with the statistician at least once early in the consultation process. Since many of the students are new to research, the input of the supervising faculty member is necessary.
Special request for predoctoral students: We request that the mentor be present at the initial meeting. We have found this to be extremely helpful - it helps the project move along quickly and avoids potential misunderstandings.
