Through a special agreement between the Center for Statistical Consulting (CSC) and the Institute for Clinical and Translations Science Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Unit, you have access to both CSC and BERD statistical consulting resources at the same rate as UCI researchers!
Two types of consulting services are available to you:
- If you need assistance with a longer term consultation, for example, assistance with grant proposals, data analysis projects, manuscripts, study design, etc. you can set up an appointment to speak with a CSC or BERD statistician by filling out the online request form here. These requests are evaluated by the director of CSC and BERD and your project will be assigned to the appropriate statistician for follow-up.
- Note: The first hour of consultation is free of charge. Additional time is charged at a rate of $80/hour.
- For more informal consultation needs to discuss your biostatistics and basic study design questions you may register for BERD’s weekly drop-in consultation sessions. These are held every Tuesday from 12-2 p.m. and the location alternates between UCI Main Campus (1st, 3rd and 5th Tuesday) and UCI Medical Center in Orange (2nd and 4th Tuesday). You can register for a 30-minute consultation session here. These sessions are held free of charge as a service to the research community.
