Grant Development

Develop a grant proposal with one of our expert biostatisticians or data scientists on your team. It is well-known that grant applications including data experts as integral members of the team receive lower scores and have a higher chance of funding. Connect with us as soon as you think you might put in a proposal. Meeting early and often allows us to help develop aims, map them to testable hypotheses, justify the study design and sample size, and write the analysis plan. This partnership strengthens your research proposal and builds a team who are all working towards a common goal of getting your science funded.

Through CCTSI BERD and School of Medicine funding, collaborative grant proposal development is available at no cost to the investigator as long as analytic personnel are adequately budgeted in the proposal.

Along with collaborating on the application, we will map out the budget and provide you with a packet highlighting CIDA and its partners for you to include with your application.

“By working with a statistician, the researcher will ultimately develop a more robust study design and analytic plan, while also identifying potential methodological issues that could impact the validity and/or generalizability of their results,” vouched investigator partner Dr. Brianne Bettcher, Director of Neuropsychology Research, who has partnered with the Center for Innovative Design and Analysis (CIDA) on several applications.
