DFMCH is currently working with three Biostatisticians, Guanhua Chen PhD, Jen Birstler MS, and Derek Norton MS. All three are within the UW Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics and are allocated part time to work in our Department with Faculty and Staff.

Guanhua, Jen, and Derek are available to assist you with all of your statistical research needs, such as initial consultation, study design, data analysis, and interpretation. They also assist with manuscript development, including co-authorship of the problem statement, methods, results, and conclusions. It is often best to involve statisticians as early as possible, and well before any data is collected.

Please use this ICTR Form to engage with our biostatisticians:
