Minimize National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP)

The National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) is a National Cancer Institute-sponsored cooperative clinical trials group dedicated to the evaluation of new modalities of treatment and prevention for operable breast and colorectal cancer. NSABP is internationally recognized for its contributions in breast and colorectal cancer and has randomized more than 135,000 patients to more than 60 randomized clinical trials. Biostatistics faculty and staff direct and staff the Biostatistical Center for the NSABP. 

Minimize ​Biostatistics Facility of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI)

Faculty members in the Department of Biostatistics direct and staff the Biostatistics Facility of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI). Working with more than 100 cancer researchers at UPCI, the facility supports the design and analysis of laboratory-based studies, early-phase clinical trials, clinical investigations, and population-science studies of cancer. 

Minimize Center for Occupational Biostatistics and Epidemiology (COBE)

The Center for Occupational Biostatistics and Epidemiology (COBE) is a research center within the Department of Biostatistics dedicated to occupational and environmental health research in the United States, and area of research the Department of Biostatistics has been a leader in for more than 45 years. The mission of COBE, based on an approach that is collaborative and multidisciplinary, is to build on the department’s successful, long-standing history in developing and applying biostatistical methods to the study of workplace exposures and health outcomes.

Minimize Comparative Effectiveness Research Core (CERC)

Biostatistics faculty lead the Comparative Effectiveness Research Core (CERC), part of the University’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute. The purpose of CERC is to provide University-wide support for researchers engaged in comparative effectiveness research (CER) and patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). CERC offers training in CER/PCOR methodology, provides guidance on promoting stakeholder involvement, assists researchers in obtaining external funding, and fosters collaborations between researchers and established CER/PCOR methodologists. The Stakeholder Engagement Guide is available here.

Minimize Public Health Dynamics Laboratory (PHDL)

Biostatistics faculty direct and participate in the Public Health Dynamics Laboratory (PHDL), a “collaboratorium” at Pitt Public Health. The mission of PHDL is to develop interdisciplinary approaches using computational models to improve our understanding of complex public health issues. PHDL brings together epidemiologists, biostatisticians, behavioral scientists, public health policy experts, and computational scientists to produce the next generation of analysis tools for the exploration of critical public health problems.
