Consulting Lab

Our department is currently engaged in two primary consulting efforts. First, we are offering statistical consulting for COVID-19 related research projects. We can help with study design, data analysis, machine learning, survey design, observational studies, prediction modeling, and many other methods. There is no charge for this service; we will prioritize projects according to our availability and expertise.

Second, we maintain an ongoing, structured Biostatistical Consulting Lab, in which our graduate students (under the guidance of Dr. Rebecca Betensky) provide the above methods of statistical support on a variety of active projects by NYU and external researchers. This is currently taking place as a weekly course for the Spring semester, but is still maintained as an extracurricular program during the Fall.

Please see below to make a request for support through either of these initiatives:
