It is anticipated that all network sites of PGRN-III will likely have a well-established statistical analysis team; however, there are occasions when additional analytical advice and expertise may be needed. Our goal is to provide consultation in the areas of study design, analysis plans, and power calculations for cross-network projects that develop post-award and site-specific projects lacking in specific expertise for a new direction. In addition, we will serve as a review board for PGRN network projects when needed.

Request Consultation

*This is not a fee-for-service resource. No monetary payments will be needed for standard consultation. P-STAR wants to promote collaboration and co-authorship rather than fee-for-service. We did not, however, budget to perform statistical analysis for new projects. If needed, P-STAR will work with sites to apply for supplemental funding as described in RFA # RFA-GM-10-001*
