Stat Lab Projects

The Stat Lab collaborates with numerous researchers, both internal and external to UA, on a variety of projects. The research includes GI cancers, COPD, proteomics, asthma, diabetes, and rice. The Stat Lab staff are involved with a wide array of grants including R01, R24, K08, P30, SPORE, PCORI, and SBIR.

Our collaborative approach allows the statisticians to be an integral member of the research team which fosters education in both directions. The statisticians learn the science, thereby ensuring the analysis is scientifically practical. In turn, the researchers become familiar with the statistics and it's intrinsic value.
