Welcome to The Center for Biomedical Statistics

We offer specific guidance for design and analysis options for proposed studies and can help with grant proposals. We also work with the Biomedical Informatics team to assist you with electronic data capture (EDC).

"Statistics is the grammar of science."
-Karl Pearson
Biostatistical collaboration for University of Washington and Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) investigators and trainees is coordinated through the Center for Biomedical Statistics (CBS).

The CBS plays a pivotal, collaborative role in biomedical research from the initial design stage to the final reporting phase. Specific guidance regarding design and analysis options for proposed studies is provided, including assistance in the preparation of grant proposals. The CBS also provides expertise in conjunction with Biomedical Informatics with electronic data capture (EDC). Statistical support and collaboration is also provided to non-ITHS investigators subject to availability and in accordance to our Policies.
