What is this service?
Biostatistical, epidemiologic, and research design support are necessary for sound research protocols and valid data analysis, but experts and well-trained personnel can be distributed, isolated, and seemingly inaccessible at large, complex research institutions such as the University of Michigan. There are also statisticians who are not affiliated with statistical departments but rather with clinical and basic science departments across the health science schools.
The Applied Biostatistical Sciences (ABS) Network aims to improve health and health research by fostering partnerships among statisticians, epidemiologists, and researchers across the university who could benefit from the expertise and resources of a network.
Who can use this service?
The ABS Network is open to statisticians, epidemiologists, and researchers across the university.
