Biostatistics Analysis Center (Penn)

Directors: Appel, Scott., MS; Kallan, Michael., MS

Summary:

As a CCEB Service Center, the BAC provides biostatistical programming and analysis support across a wide range of research programs and medical disciplines, of any size and complexity, both within the University and externally. Whether the BAC supports a federally funded multi-year, multi-center research study or provides short-term analytic support for a departmentally funded project, each project receives the right amount of specialized expertise needed to achieve research goals.
