Researchers often have questions about statistics in designing a study or analyzing data. Some statistical questions can be easily answered in a short conversation with a knowledgeable statistician. In order to efficiently and effectively meet the statistical needs of clinical and translational investigators at UC Davis, the CTSC — in collaboration with the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center — maintain weekly office hours for statistical consultations. These office hours are an opportunity for investigators to consult with a statistician about the design, analysis or presentation of medical research studies in a friendly, informal setting.
Due to the popularity of this program, investigators wanting to attend one of the upcoming office hours are asked to reserve a spot in advance. You may make a reservation up to 30 days in advance. In order to be able to adequately address each attendee’s question, space is limited. If time permits, we will take questions from attendees without a reservation.
