The UNC Biostatistics and Imaging Analysis Lab (BIAS) has diverse interest in solving methodological issues in statistics. Their past and present statistical projects include diagnostic measures, stochastic approximation algorithm, structural equation models, mixed effect models, spline regression, missing data problems, variable selections, empirical likelihood, mixture models and regression tree.
The Innovative Methods Program for Advancing Clinical Trials (IMPACT) is a comprehensive program that aims to improve dramatically the health and longevity of people by improving the clinical trial process. The primary source of funding for this project is the National Cancer Institute through a program project (P01 CA142538) grant entitled “Statistical Methods for Cancer Clinical Trials.” IMPACT’s approach is to leverage recent advances in biologic, genomic, statistical, and computational sciences to create new clinical trial designs and data analysis tools that resolve many of the key scientific limitations of current statistical methods and that maximize the effectiveness of clinical trials for personalized cancer medicine.
The principal objective of the Biostatistics Core (BIOS Core) is to provide high quality statistical consultation services to UNC’s Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center members. The BIOS Core provides a full collaborative scientific resource focused on providing UNC Lineberger members support for the design, conduct, analyses, and generation of manuscripts for their research.
The purpose of the CFAR Biostatistics Core is to accelerate successful HIV/AIDS research by direct provision of biostatistical support and by arranging mutually beneficial collaborations between CFAR researchers and statistical scientists. The core provides biostatistical support that is readily available to CFAR investigators and to other CFAR Cores. In addition to making strategic contributions to the CFAR’s scientific dialog, the core also provides statistical consulting services that range from brief professional consultations to invention of new statistical methods.
The UNC Injury Prevention Research Center (IPRC) develops, tests, and implements prevention solutions that reduce the impact of injury and violence in North Carolina and worldwide.
The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Facility Core (BBFC) provides support for the data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation needs of laboratory, clinical, and population-based investigations in environmental health.
The Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) is a partnership of Duke University, North Carolina State University (NCSU), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The institute’s mission is to forge a synthesis of the statistical sciences and the applied mathematical sciences with disciplinary science to confront the very hardest and most important data- and model-driven scientific challenges.
The Department of Statistics and Operations Research specializes in inference, decision-making, and data analysis involving complex models and systems exhibiting both deterministic and random behavior.
The Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute (NC TraCS) work to accelerate clinical and translational research from health science to discovery to dissemination to patients and communities. The Institute seeks to overcome barriers to translation by improving efficiency, training the research workforce and sharing successful research methods.
