Biostatistics Support Request Form

To request support from the Biostatistics Shared Resource, please complete this form. Your request will be reviewed promptly and we will schedule a meeting to discuss your project, including outlining how and when the resource can assist you.

Guidelines for Working with the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR)

  • BSR provides support to UNM Cancer Center members through collaborations in which Biostatisticians become long-term collaborators within research teams through the support of grant funding.
  • Any exceptions to this model can be discussed through an introductory meeting with the BSR Director.
  • Please provide sufficient lead time for our work. All requests are unique and a precise timeline will be estimated during initial meeting.

    Examples of time guidelines are:

    • Letter of support for grant application: 1 week
    • Internal grant application: 1 month
    • External grant application: 3 months
    • Statistical analysis for manuscript/abstract/presentation: 1- 3 months
What to expect after request submission:
  • Request will be reviewed promptly and investigators will be contacted to set up a meeting to further discuss proposal with assigned statistician.
  • Initial meeting will include a discussion outlining how the BSR can assist you, determine a timeline, establish a scope of work.
  • All grant proposals that include a BSR statistician require a Grant Proposal Letter of Intent (LOI) for Biostatistical Support signed by the investigator and lead statistician prior to submission
  • A Letter of Agreement for Biostatistical Support is completed prior to initiating project work
