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 a clinical and translational research and education enterprise. More and more research studies involve complex study design and generate complicated multivariate data, which cannot be adequately addressed by simple t-tests or chi-squared tests. Extramural funding has also become increasingly competitive. Funding agencies and study sessions have started to focus more and more on whether the research design of a proposal is optimal and whether data analysis plan is statistically sound and well thought through.
With the generous support from JABSOM Dean's Office and two major institutional infrastructural grants, i.e., RCMI Multidisciplinary And Translational Research Infrastructure eXpansion Program (RMATRIX), RCMI Bioscience Research Infrastructure Development for Grant Enhancement and Success Program (BRIDGES), UH JABSOM has started the process of building a critical mass of biostatisticians and supporting staff.
The BDMC is located on the fourth floor of the JABSOM Medical Education Building on the University of Hawaii Kaka'ako campus. We welcome you to visit us in person, to submit your request online, or to utilize our online self-service statistical tools. Our biostatisticians are always ready to discuss with you about your research ideas, your study design, data management and statistical analysis service and educational needs, and to explore mutually beneficial collaboration opportunities.
