Biostatistical Shared Resource
The Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) provides biostatistical collaboration and support for Cancer Center researchers, including:
- Study design
- Data analysis
- Grant preparation, such as writing statistical sections, providing power calculations, conducting background data analyses and writing letters of support
- Clinical trials design and analysis
- Statistical methodology development
With five members, the Biostatistics Shared Resource includes expertise in a wide range of areas, including statistical genetics, high-dimensional data analysis, Bayesian statistical methods, survival analysis, general regression methods, clinical trials and biostatistical methods in epidemiology. The BSR works extensively with clinical researchers, and members serve on the Protocol Review Committee and the Data Safety Monitoring Committee. They also collaborate on the design and analysis of clinical trials being conducted at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Biostatistics faculty also collaborate with researchers in genomics research, including designing and conducting statistical analyses of next-generation sequencing studies in conjunction with the Keck-UNM Genomics Resource. Members are funded on several NIH grants to study cancer development, diagnosis and treatment.

Working with the BSR
Although the purpose of the BSR is to provide support to cancer center members, the preferred mode of interaction is though productive collaborations in which biostatistics faculty become long-term collaborators within research teams with funding from grants.
