The Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is a campus-wide shared resource housed within the Department of Biostatistics and serves as one of the core resources of the St. Jude Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) has the unwavering mission of providing comprehensive and state-of-the-art biostatistical support for study design and study execution, as well as data analysis and interpretation for laboratory, translational, clinical and population-science investigations. Members of the BSR also participate in preparing grant proposals and clinical protocols. Further, they play an active role in institutional scientific review and ethics committees.
Our steadfast support at all stages of the translational pipeline ensures that even the most complex data are gathered, analyzed and presented in the most appropriate and meaningful manner. The BSR maintains a centralized randomization system, manages access to statistical software and advises on data capture and management. Members of the BSR continue to develop new and innovative statistical approaches to improve the design, analysis and interpretation of challenging data, including clinical trial designs for precision medicine, predictive modeling using AI, analysis of high dimensional genomic or imaging data, and integrated analysis of multi-omics data.
