Assistance is available at all stages of your research. You are encouraged to contact a consultant at the beginning of your study. First consultations typically last from 30 minutes to one hour. Follow-up consultations are usually necessary.

These services are provided free. Services include guidance on and discussion of the best statistical approach as well as help with trouble shooting and interpretation. For researchers seeking complete analyses by a statistician, please contact the Biomedical Statistics Research Core.
