For biostatistics data services at Tulane, consult the La CATS team at Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
The LA CaTS (Louisiana Clinical and Translational Sciences) award is a collaborative NIH grant in which the Pennington Biomedical Research Center is the lead institution, LSUHSC and Tulane are primary collaborative institutions and Xavier, LSU Shreveport, Children’s and other Louisans Institution are research partners.
One of the key functions of LaCats is to provide consultation, guidance, and analytical resources for the study design, epidemiology and statistical analysis of research at our LA CaTS institutions, through the Biostatistics and Epidemiology Core.
Researchers can fill out a SPARC request for LACATS biostatistics support at https://lacats.pbrc.edu/resources/sparc/ & one of the Biostatistics and Epidemiology Core members will then contact you to schedule a meeting.
