Data Analysis

The CTSI Research Design and Analysis Program (RDAP) offers data analysis services for clinical and translational science studies. The service is provided as a collaborative effort among the RDAP and Biostatistics faculty.

Data analysis is available for:

  1. Funded grants where the budget includes a component for data analysis by a faculty member who is listed at a level of 10% FTE or higher
  2. Other analytic needs for projects that have not made a commitment for RDAP faculty to do the analysis as a Co-Investigator. The presumption is that the data management will have been done in cooperation with RDAP, and that the analysts will receive the data in a form ready for analysis.

Grant work

Depending upon the role, faculty involvement will vary. Faculty appointed to grants at 10% FTE or higher will have major participation in the analyses. Faculty appointed below 10% FTE will have oversight of the RDAP or PI’s Master’s-level biostatistician.

Charges

Senior Consultant Analyst: Advanced statistical consulting services requiring a Ph.D.-level statistician, including experimental design, power and sample-size calculations, specialized analysis, interpretation of results and manuscript review. $150/hr

Consultant Analyst: (Currently not available.) Services requiring a Master’s-level statistician, including experimental design, power and sample-size calculations, interpretation of results, statistical analyses for inclusion into reports and manuscript review. Other services may include Programming: SAS, STATA, SPSS and other programming for data analysis and generation of graphics for reports, and conversion of databases to SAS or SPSS. $80/hr

Before beginning work, the RDAP will provide a cost estimate and verify funding with the principal investigator of the study. RDAP biostatisticians and CTSI staff will be responsible for managing work flow to ensure timely delivery of services, drafting invoices to collect payment for those services and following up to ensure payment is received.

Note: There will be no charge for the first hour of consultation.

Students, post-docs and other young faculty can apply for a voucher covering up to eight hours of consulting support if they have no other support to pay for the charges. APPCI, TL1 and KL2 scholars are especially encouraged to contact Dr. Shuster.
