The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is to provide a centralized resource with expertise in the biostatistics aspects of clinical, basic science, translational and population science to the GUMC research community, and the NCI-designated Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC) Research Consortium.  Within this Consortium, the BSR provides comprehensive statistical analysis support to researchers at both the LCCC in Washington, DC, and the John Theurer Cancer Center in New Jersey, which includes research at the Hackensack Meridian Center for Discovery and Innovation. Statistical issues are considered at all levels of investigation from the design to the conduct of experiments, and the analysis and interpretation of results. Bioinformatics pertains mainly to statistical analysis and modeling in genomics, microbiome, computational biology and biomarker development. BSR is housed within the Department of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics where most BSR members have primary faculty appointment.   Specifically, the primary objectives of the BSR are:

  • To collaborate with consortium investigators on the study design and analysis of basic science, clinical, translational and population science research projects, especially those likely to lead to research grant support,
  • To participate effectively in the clinical trials program by providing biostatistics input to the design and analysis of all Lombardi clinical trials, by active membership on the Clinical Research Committee and providing biostatistics reviews of proposed protocols, and by the monitoring of all Lombardi trials through the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee,
  • To educate Lombardi investigators, staff and students in biostatistics methodology for the planning, conduct, analysis and interpretation of cancer research studies,
  • To perform research methodology on problems arising in collaborations with investigators on cancer research projects, and
  • Remain active in methodology research in biostatistics funded through other mechanisms on problems motivated by cancer research projects, and create a synergy between such methods and the science at LCCC.
