Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Core  

The goal of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core (BBC) is to provide Biostatistics and Bioinformatics solutions to the Center for Translational Viral Oncology (CTVO) investigators to accelerate translational research on viral oncology, across all roles within the research team.

The BBC will provide analytical support at all stages of research, beginning with the formulation of explicitly testable study questions, experimental design, data collection, management, analysis, and interpretation, as well as the writing of reports and dissemination of results.
