TCI-BSRF (Biostatistics Shared Resource Facility) invites you to join its Cancer Biostatistics Walk-In Clinic held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month starting December 5th, 2018 from 1:00pm-2:00 pm in room 6-122 of the Hess (CSM) Building, 6th Floor. During the walk-in clinic, a biostatistician will be available for quick statistical consultation on a first come, first served basis.
The purpose of this clinic is to answer general statistical questions* and to provide guidance for current and future cancer research projects. We are unable to fully design projects and run analyses during this time. If additional assistance is needed outside of the allotted time, please visit our website for TCI-BSRF resources and guidelines: https://icahn.mssm.edu/research/institute-health-care-delivery/tci-biostatistics. Upon arrival to the HESS Building, attendees can proceed directly to the 6th floor, Room 122, to meet with a biostatistician.
