Our statistical collaborators are trained to help design experiments, analyze and plot data, run statistical software, interpret results, and communicate statistical concepts to non-statisticians. Our assistance is free for university faculty, staff, and students on academic research projects. Our collaborators are staff in the Department of Biometry & Mathematics and statisticians from other units at the University. The earlier in your research you request statistical advice, the better; so learn more about our collaboration service or Request a Collaboration Meeting.
We provide a series of evening short courses to help graduate students use statistics in their research. The focus of these two-hour courses is on teaching practical statistical techniques for analyzing or collecting data. Each course may have assignments to complete BEFORE attending. Registration is required for each course separately. View course list and register.
A statistical consultant will be available Monday through Friday from 11 am -1 pm when classes are in session to answer your quick questions or to help with research projects requiring less than 30 minutes of assistance. For more in-depth questions or longer projects, complete the Collaboration Request Form and a team of statistical collaborators will be assigned to work with you. Note: We do not assist with class projects or homework. Learn more.
SUALISA is a proud member of the LISA 2020 Statistical Collaboration Network. LISA
2020 is a program of LISA (Virginia Tech's Laboratory for
Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis) to train statisticians from
developing countries to become collaborative statisticians who will help
enable and accelerate research to solve real-world problems and build a
network of 20 statistical collaboration laboratories by 2020.
