Neurology Biostatistics and IRB/Regulatory Core Resources
Department members (faculty, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, clinical fellows, residents, medical students) pursuing research projects have access to expert guidance on study design, data collection and statistical analysis. The Neurology Biostatistics Clinic, led by Parul Agarwal, PhD, from the Department of Population Health Science and Policy, occurs twice each month to answer statistical questions about current and future research projects. There is also an MSc level statistical programmer with expertise in major statistical software programs. In addition, the Neurology Department has a Clinical IRB/Research Regulatory Advisor, who has a deep understanding of the regulatory navigation for clinical studies, ranging from study conceptualization to the final process of closing out regulatory documents and contracts.
