Biostatistics Center

The Biostatistics Center is the primary resource for providing biostatistical collaboration and support for biomedical researchers throughout UConn Health. Our goal is to provide support for grant development that leads to externally funded grants, ongoing research collaboration, publications, and translational discoveries. Center staff consult with researchers to identify best analysis strategies, study design, and power analysis. We are available to investigators in all phases of their research within the UConn community.
