The core encourages collaboration, so investigators are free to contact faculty statisticians directly. You can request an introduction or consulting appointment by phone (ext 61444) or email (#biostat_core).
Any publication involving the use of core services should arrange for submission of the publication to PubMed Central, in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy, and should include the following acknowledgement:
Research reported in this publication included work performed in the Biostatistics Core supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30CA33572. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.
It is also generally accepted practice that a collaborating statistician from the core will be included in the authorship list if the research is presented in a public forum or published. Authorship is unrelated to funding.
