The Harvard Catalyst Biostatistical Consulting Program, funded by the National Institutes of Health, supports Harvard investigators undertaking clinical and translational research. Drawing on a team of highly skilled biostatisticians from the Harvard academic medical and hospital community, the program offers consultations and expertise on a range of relevant areas to researchers as they launch new clinical and translation projects. The program also promotes the development and mentoring of Harvard Catalyst biostatisticians, as well as biostatistical training for clinical investigators.

  • Grant submission/resubmission
  • IRB submission
  • Protocol review
  • Design for non-grant project/feasibility consultation
