Types of support

Study Design - Meet with us early in your study development and we'll help you set up your project, including hypothesis clarification, design details, analysis plan, random selection of subjects, etc.

Grant Preparation - If your study design is for a grant submission, we can help you write a statistical methods section including Power and Sample Size calculations. An ISCC statistician may also be written into the grant budget to perform data analysis once the grant is in effect.

Data Analysis - There are multiple ways ISCC can guide you as you perform your data analysis.

  • Creating an analysis plan of appropriate methods and tests
  • Importing data into statistical software and setting up the data for analysis
  • Showing you how to perform the analyses in your software
  • Interpreting output and reporting results

Presentation & Manuscript Preparation - ISCC can help you prepare results for presentation to your research community. This may include a doctoral dissertation, conference presentation, or journal manuscript.

  • Creating a clear write-up of your statistical methods and results
  • Reviewing relevant pieces of your manuscript before submission
  • Evaluating and responding to comments you have received back from reviewers

Please contact us to discuss your project!

 

More details: 1. The ISCC exists to support research projects, not to provide tutoring or help with coursework. IRB documents may be requested as needed. 2. All staff time reading/thinking/researching for your specific project does count for your project's total hours of service, so please be mindful of narrowing down your questions and materials sent where possible. 3. Emergency (last-minute) requests will be accomodated only if time permits and charged at double the above rates.
