DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
The global objective of the Biostatistics/Informatics Shared Resource( BSR) is
to provide the infrastructure and expertise for centralized and project
specific database development, management, and analysis. In addition, the BSR
will ensure that all oncology and oncology-related researchers have ready
access to consultation related to biostatistics/informatics. The BSR will
provide data entry, management and analytic support and aid in the design of
experiments for oncology and oncology-related studies conducted by researchers
affiliated with the Kansas Cancer Institute and the University of Kansas
Medical Center. The specific aims are to: 1) Provide statistical expertise in
study design and protocol development for investigators, 2) Serve as a
repository for all basic science, clinical and behavioral studies conducted by
the investigators, 3) Coordinate the preparation of data collection forms, 4)
Develop a standardized reporting format across all studies conducted by the
investigators, 5) Develop a computerized data quality control, monitoring and
management system, 6) Maintain study databases, 7) Train investigators and
their staff in data collection and quality procedures and statistical
methodology, 8) Perform appropriate statistical analyses of study data, 9)
Participate in the preparation of study presentations and publications, 10)
Develop statistical methodology to enhance study design and analysis and
interpretation of results of studies conducted by the investigators, 1l)
Further develop expertise in bioinformatics, 12) Generate randomization
schemes for investigators' studies. The BSR faculty and staff have
considerable experience and expertise and excellent facilities, which include
up-to-date hardware and software provided by the Kansas Cancer Institute and
the Department of Preventive Medicine. A Resource Advisory Group has been
formed with expertise in oncology, biostatistics and informatics to advise the
BSR on an ongoing basis.
