Biostatistics Bioinformatics Shared ResourceEducational Activities of the Shared Resource
Free Consulting. The BBSR offers free statistical and bioinformatics consultation services to Lombardi researchers every Monday from 2 pm to 3 pm by appointment. BBSR areas of expertise include: animal studies, basic science, cancer control, clinical trials, databases, bioinformatics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epidemiology, mathematical modeling, genomics, and metabolomics.
Please contact Lindsay Seidenberg (202-687-0824, email@example.com) for further information.
Lectures. We provide lectures given by BBSR members in several courses in the Tumor Biology graduate program
TBIO 560: Animal Models of Cancer, and
TBIO 543: Clinical Survey of Human Cancer.
If you need a lecture for your course, or a one-time lecture for your research group or lab, please contact Caroline Wu (202-687-4114, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Journal Clubs. Members of our shared resource routinely participate in the two weekly journal clubs (Oncology and Hematology) for clinical investigators where biostatisticians give a yearly presentation. Weekly participation often involves explaining and giving a critique of the biostatistical methods used in published medical articles.
Fellows Lectures. We present two lectures yearly on planning clinical trials for the Fellows Lecture series.
Workshops. We offer occasional workshops involving hands-on demonstration of bioinformatics tools, either organized by the BBSR or presented by BBSR members. Additionally, we participate in workshop presentations for new faculty on BBSR services and capabilities.
Formal Courses. If you would like a more formal course, we offer service courses in biostatistics
BIST 501: Introductory Biostatistics
BIST 502: Applied Biostatistics
Additionally, all of our MS courses are available to LCCC members:
BIST 510: Probability and Sampling
