Consultancy involves advice on study design, methodology, computer software, data analysis and preparation, and revision of articles and reports.

A brief overview of biostatistical guidelines for research projects: design, analysis and data management can be found here.

The biostatisticians and computational biology specialists can also act as collaborators during research analysis or on long term studies, and provide training in biostatistical methods.

There is no charge for consultation services provided by consultancy staff for thesis students and members of staff of the School. However biostatistical work should be costed as part of research grant applications. Priority will be given to grants on which biostatisticians and computational biology specialists are named and to grants bringing in overheads.

Thesis students who will require biostatistical advice are encouraged to consult a biostatistician early. The first meeting should be with their primary supervisor (other supervisors are also welcome).

Researchers in Medicine and Psychological Medicine should contact Associate Professor Chris Frampton and other researchers should consult with Professor Elisabeth Wells, Dr John Pearson or Dr Jonathan Williman.

For appointments with John Pearson or Jonathan Williman contact Amanda Clifford ( with:

  • Student name,
  • Supervisors' names,
  • Departments,
  • Programme in which enrolled,
  • Title/subject area of research, and
  • Possible times to meet.

Each student will be allocated to a consultant depending on their workloads and the expertise required for the project.

For appointments with Chris Frampton, please contact Chris directly.
