There is no charge for an introductory meeting to discuss the project and scope of work.
As a cost-recovery service, rates are based on actual cost to the Department and School. The fee schedule includes all expenses related to personnel and enables them to perform their duties related to the research project and carry out the mission of the center. These include computer hardware, systems support, software, administrative support, professional travel, supplies, and telephone.
Rates for research projects outside of Indiana University contain an additional component to help support the education, research, and service missions of the department.
Faculty in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics are also available to collaborate as Co-Investigators where interests align.
The Indiana CTSI Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) program provides funding for BCC to support grant preparation, including study design, analysis plans, and sample-size/power calculations, at no charge to investigators. Funding for biostatistics personnel in the grant budget may include faculty, Master's-level biostatisticians, and/or graduate students as needed for a strong proposal.
While the Biostatistics Consulting Center is a professional fee-for-service center with rates listed above, some staff and students volunteer to provide free neighborly advice on DIY projects via the Social Science Research Commons (SSRC). While we can't do your work for you, we can work with your advising committee to provide tips and resources for statistical methodology. Contact us for more information.
