Guidelines for Working with the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR)

Please review the guidelines for working with faculty in the BSR:

  • Although the purpose of the BSR is to provide support to UNM Cancer Center members, the preferred mode of interaction is through productive collaborations in which biostatistics faculty become long-term collaborators within research teams, with funding from grants.
  • Please provide sufficient lead time. Examples of time guidelines are:
    • Grant submission with basic statistical support: 1 month
    • Grant submission with major statistical collaboration: 3 months
    • Grant submission with multiple projects: 4 months
    • Letter of support for grant: 1 week
  • What to expect after request submission:
    • Investigators will be contacted to set up a meeting to further discuss proposal with assigned statistician
    • Any request for inclusion of a statistician within a Grant proposal requires this additional document which will be completed by the PI and the primary statistician assigned to their project.
