Analysis & Development Services


The team is trained on a variety of statistical techniques from basic hypothesis testing to advanced modeling techniques.  We also provide power and sample size calculations and will write the methods sections for your proposal submission or manuscripts.  Often, presentation of results are built around the specification of the journal chosen for publication. 

We primarily program in SAS, Stata, and R, and partner with Children’s and GW Informatics staff on Big Data analytic and reporting projects.
