The Biostatistics,Epidemiology, and Biomathematics Research Core provides services and expertise to assist investigators within WCMC-Q and other institutions in Qatar in different fields of biostatistics, epidemiology, and mathematical modeling including study design, data analysis, and grant proposal preparation. Types of services We provide four kinds of services: Pre-award research support: [free of charge] We provide biostatistical and epidemiological support in relation to the design of projects and preparation of grant proposals. Examples of services include sample size calculations, power analyses, and guidance in design of study instruments and protocols. Post-award research support: [funding to be provided] We provide biostatistical and epidemiological support in the conduct of funded studies particularly in relation to various statistical analyses. Examples of services include the conduct of multivariate analysis, factor analysis, and non-parametric tests. Short-term research support: [fee for service] We provide biostatistical and epidemiological consulting support in the conduct of different kinds of studies on a short-term basis. These consultancies are short-term and typically involve non-complex statistical analyses. Examples of services include the conduct of conventional statistical metrics, analysis of variance, and multivariate analysis. Educational services: [fee for service] We provide short courses, workshops, and seminars on topics related to research in general. These include courses related to the design of a study, design of study instruments, basic biostatistics, advanced biostatistics, clinical trials, and the use of computer software for statistical analyses.
