The Biostatistics Core facility is a group of statisticians who collaborate in basic, translational, and clinical research in the Cancer Center. The Core is supported by City of Hope’s NCI-funded Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG), and its services are available to City of Hope researchers.
”The central requirement for successful collaboration is clear, broad, specific, two-way communication on both scientific issues and research roles.”
-- Moses and Thomas, Chapter 18 in Medical Uses of Statistics, 2nd ed., NEJM Books, 1992
