Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Consultation

TRI offers support in biostatistics and research design. The Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) group provides front-end assistance to investigators to ensure the use of statistically sound practices, thereby facilitating properly designed and scientifically valid clinical and translational research studies.

Well-designed studies are not developed in isolation. As such, we recommend that investigators include a biostatistician as part of their research team as early as possible in the design process.

Assistance in other areas such as data analysis is offered in conjunction with the UAMS Department of Biostatistics and the Department of Pediatrics at Arkansas Children’s Hospital/Arkansas Children’s Research Institute.
