Use this form to request support from the PeDRA Biostatistician. The PeDRA Biostatistician is available as a free resource to PeDRA Members to provide a range of services depending on the project stage.
For new PeDRA Studies or ideas, PeDRA Grant and Award Applications under preparation, or ongoing PeDRA Studies that have encountered a roadblock:
One-hour consultations for planning, preparation, problem-solving, and/or defining project scope.
For ongoing PeDRA Studies that started prior to November 1, 2021 or new PeDRA Studies that have had a one-hour consultation and are ready to proceed with next steps:
Full-service statistical support including services such as method selection, data analysis, interpretation of results, data visualizations, and manuscript preparation assistance.
To be eligible for any form of support from the PeDRA Biostatistician, the Principal Investigator (PI) must be a PeDRA Member in good standing and the project under consideration must satisfy at least one of the criteria defined above.
To be eligible for full-service statistical support, investigators need to have already had a one-hour consultation with the PeDRA Biostatistician and must submit a new request through this form. PeDRA Studies that began prior to November 1, 2021 are exempt from this requirement but are strongly encouraged to utilize a one-hour consultation prior to requesting full-service support.
One-hour consultations are available to all eligible PIs and projects. Following administrative review to confirm eligibility, PeDRA staff will coordinate consultations dependent upon schedule availability.
Project support requests will be evaluated on a competitive basis by the PeDRA Studies Committee to preserve equity of access to the biostatistician and to manage the biostatistician’s workload. A scope of services for approved requests will be mutually agreed upon by the committee and PI before any support is provided.
Requests will be accepted at any time and reviewed on a rolling basis. Please note that all requests to work with the PeDRA Biostatistician must be made through this form. Do not reach out to the biostatistician to arrange services directly.
Investigators who receive any form of support from the PeDRA Biostatistician are expected to acknowledge PeDRA in all related manuscripts and posters. Authorship credit for the PeDRA Biostatistician should be considered according to the standards of PeDRA’s Authorship Statement.
