Biostatistics Research Core

The Biostatistics Research Core (BRC) is a core facility of Clinical & Translational Research at the Manne Research Institute and is available to assist investigators with research projects from inception through final analysis.

By developing a collaborative relationship with the BRC, researchers can raise the quality of their research, thereby improving study results and ultimately paving the way to improved therapies and cures for the patients at Lurie Children's.

Through our partnership with the Biostatistics Collaboration Center (BCC) of Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS), we are able to offer researchers access to a broad network of biostatistical expertise.​

At the initial stages of a research project, it is highly recommended that investigators consult with the BRC for assistance. An initial consultation is provided without charge and optimizes the start up process by reviewing the study design and providing tips on data formatting​ and collection procedures. The BRC can also assist with:

  • Sample size determination
  • Data analysis
  • Manuscript preparation
  • Grant Submissions

Investigators should always allow 4 to 6 weeks for their project to be completed.
