Core C: Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Core

The goal of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core (Core C) is to address the statistical design and analysis needs of the Yale SPORE in Head and Neck Cancer (YHN-SPORE) Projects, the Cores, the Developmental Research Program (DRP), and the Career Development Program (CDP).

To accomplish this goal we have assembled a highly interactive team of cancer biostatisticians and bioinformaticians who will work collaboratively with basic, clinical, translational, and population science researchers to advance the frontiers of cancer medicine.

The specific aims of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core are:

  • Aim 1: Provide collaboration and consulting in the design, execution, monitoring and analysis of basic, translational, population, and clinical studies for YHN-SPORE.
  • Aim2: Oversee and coordinate the collection, management, and analysis of data.
  • Aim 3: Ensure that data collected on all YHN-SPORE studies are of high quality, are evaluated with bioinformatic and statistical rigor, are accessible within SPORE-affiliated collaborative groups, ultimately enabling the widest accessibility that is appropriate given publication and privacy concerns.
