Welcome to JABSOM Biostatistics & Data Management Core (BDMC)!
Aloha! Thank you for visiting our website. Strong research design and biostatistical support plays a critical role in the long-term success of clinical and translational research and education enterprise. Current research studies involve complex study design and generate complicated multivariate data, which require statistical expertise. Extramural funding has also become increasingly competitive. Funding agencies and study sessions have started to focus more on whether the research design of a proposal is optimal and whether data analysis plan is statistically appropriate.
To provide the quantitative expertise, UH JABSOM has started the process of building a critical mass of biostatisticians and supporting staff in recent years. BDMC is located on the 2nd floor of the JABSOM Biosciences Building at the University of Hawaii Kaka'ako campus. We welcome you to visit us in person, submit your request online, or utilize our online self-service statistical tools. Our biostatisticians are available to discuss with you about your research projects, including hypothesis development, study design, database development and management, health sciences data analysis, and educational needs, as well as explore collaboration opportunities.
