Biostatistical consulting provides statistical expertise for clinical, epidemiological and other health-related research.
The consulting biostatisticians can collaborate or offer advice on:

Early consultation benefits your research
We recommend meeting with a biostatistician while you are defining your research question.
Early consultation allows us to help you identify the best methods and tools to suit your investigation.
We encourage PhD candidates to have their supervisor(s) present for at least the initial meeting. This helps develop a shared understanding of the purpose of the research.
