Biostatistics & Analytics Core

Directed by Kathryn Colborn, PhD, MSPH

The Biostatistics and Analytics Core provides collaborative support to ACCORDS investigators in all areas of health services and outcomes research, including grant development, study design, database development and management, and statistical analysis. Made up of both Doctoral and Master’s level biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and data analysts, our areas of expertise include pragmatic trial design (e.g., cluster randomized trials, stepped-wedge, multi-level modeling), longitudinal data analysis, missing data, repeated events modeling, time-to-event analysis, predictive modeling, database design, machine learning, and SAS and R programming. For non-ACCORDS collaborators, free study design or analysis consultation may be available from our PhD biostatisticians. Direct FTE support is required for long-term collaborations and analysis by our analysts. 

Currently our team is made up of 2 PhD biostatisticians and 13 mostly Master's trained analysts. Learn more on our Who We Are page.
