• Clinical Component-Data Analysis and Management

    The Digestive Health Center (DHC) is partnering with the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST) to provide members with biostatistical support and the infrastructure to execute disease-based clinical research.  Faculty and staff of the Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) are experienced at applying biostatistical methodological and ethical principles across a broad array of interdisciplinary clinical and translational research projects.

    Services that the BERD faculty provide:

    • Advising on research designs, including project implementation and data collection methods
    • Providing access to REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) for research studies
    • Reviewing REDCap Data Base Structure
    • Conducting power analyses and determining sample size.
    • Providing guidance on appropriate statistical methods based on study design
    • Developing data safety and monitoring plans
    • Creating surveys and questionnaires
    • Conducting a wide array of statistical analysis


    The first 10 hours of doctoral-level support per PI is provided by the CCTST grant.

    For projects that go beyond 10 hours, the DHC will subsidize the cost by providing 50% of the total charge up to $500 per PI per year.  This subsidy is subject to change based upon the availability of funds. 

    The full rate is:

    • $129/hour for doctoral-level support
    • $77/hour for master’s/staff-level support

    When seeking support from BERD, DHC members should be present at the initial meeting.

    To use the service, you must complete the request form on the CCTST website. When completing the form please select "Digestive Health Center" in the project affiliation drop down menu.
