Biostatistics, Informatics, & Protocol Support

The Biomedical Informatics Program (BIP), the Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD) Program, the Clinical Research Network (CRN) and the Ethics & Regulatory Program, are pleased to offer Studio consultations.  The purpose of the Studio consultation is to interact early with researchers in clinical study design and analysis to allow for successful implementation of their research projects.

A "Studio" consultation is a term coined by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, & Research Design (BERD) core of Vanderbilt's CTSA program. A studio represents a meeting between a clinical investigator and representatives of the analytic cores of ACTSI (BIP, CRN & BERD).  The Studio offers the researcher an opportunity to present an outline of their proposed research and obtain targeted input regarding support from BERD, BIP, CRN. The hope is to aid in the design, implementation and analysis associated with the proposed study in order to maximize competitiveness, accuracy and reproducibility.

In short, the Studio consultation offers a one-stop assessment of a proposed research project in order to outline a detailed plan of action for research success including identification of the necessary expertise in biostatistics, epidemiology, comprehensive informatics and clinical information systems required for a successful project.

A Studio Consultation will assist researchers in any of the following areas:

1.     Hypothesis Generation                                        

2.     Study Design

3.     Implementation               

4.     Analysis & Interpretation

5.     Translation

6.     Manuscript Development

Schedule: Consultations are scheduled as needed and are based on the availability of all parties involved and the timeline of the proposal submission. 

Location:  Emory University, Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building, 1440 Clifton Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30322
