Our mission is to provide collaborative support in all areas of Biostatistics work that include, study design, analysis, and interpretation with interaction with industry and, government and regulatory agencies in the areas of Clinical trials, Epidemiology, laboratory studies. In addition to data mining using local and national databases for hypotheses generation and scientific investigation.
The Biostatistics Core (BC) is dedicated to supporting members of the Georgia Cancer Center in their investigative studies. Researchers will find expertise in planning, conducting, analyzing and reporting data relative to clinical trials as well as epidemiologic-, and population-based studies.
The Augusta University Quality Assurance Office for Clinical Trials (QACT) and the Office for Protection of Research Subjects (OPRS) also rely on this resource for efficient and accurate database design and management of clinical research data.
The Biostatistics investigators also conduct independently sponsored research in statistical analysis, data mining using the Cancer Center registry data, clinical and laboratory, SEER and other national data bases. These studies can greatly benefit the work of Cancer Center members. Many of the Biostatistics core members are faculty at the department of Biostatistics and epidemiology and provide educational programs to meet the need of the Cancer Center investigators.
