This is one of several OHSU resources supported by the Knight NCI Cancer Center Support Grant. The grant ensures that management and support services are available for the researchers and programs of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. 

The primary goal of the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) is to provide biostatistics support to basic, clinical and population science researchers who are conducting cancer research at OHSU. The BSR strives to enhance scientific quality and rigor of research through professional consultation and collaboration at all phases of cancer research. We encourages cancer researchers to consult with the BSR as early as possible and to work with a biostatistician as a collaborator and co-investigator.
