    Policies and Guidelines for Including Biostatistics Support on Grants

    Categories are  Grants  tagged  Research /  Award /  STEM /  Masters Degree /  PHD Degree

    The guidelines lay out common scenarios and are meant to serve as a starting point for discussion for planning and budgeting purposes. In all cases, discussion with Biostatistics faculty early in the grant preparation process is necessary to ensure that the appropriate level of support is provided.

    PhD faculty and master’s statisticians can participate in grant development in numerous ways including

  • assisting with the development of a research team;
  • assisting the investigators in defining and refining study aims and measures;
  • developing study designs;
  • writing statistical analysis plans;
  • computing the power or sample sizes necessary to achieve the study aims;
  • If Biostatistics effort in proposal development is not covered by funded projects, time spent on proposal development will be billed at the current hourly rate or MOU.

    Inclusion of Biostatistics Personnel in Project Budgets

    PhD faculty effort:Biostatistics faculty should be included as named co-investigators (typically as key personnel) on collaborative applications. While effort may vary from year to year, an average of 10% effort (1.2 calendar months per year) over the project period is suggested as a guideline for most clinical projects and more complex basic science projects (see effort allocation guidelines below). Faculty may not be included on budgets for less than 5% effort without the approval of the Chair of the Department of Biostatistics.

    Master’s statistician effort: Master’s statisticians and data management personnel provide assistance with data management, statistical programming, and preparation of reports and manuscripts. For most funded projects, master’s statistician should be coupled with PhD faculty effort.

    Effort Allocation Guidelines

    These guidelines provide suggested levels of support for projects of varying complexity and need of statistical expertise.

    Large or complex projects (e.g. multi-site clinical trials, cores for program projects or SPORES): Total biostatistics annual effort 50–100+% per year, such as 20% or more of PhD faculty time plus 30–100% master’s statistician FTE.

    Regular Projects (e.g., R01 involving clinical data, basic science project with complex analysis (eg. Omics data)): Total biostatistics annual effort 20–50%, such as 10–15% PhD faculty time plus 10–35% master’s statistician FTE.

    Simple Projects (e.g., project under 250K direct per year): Total biostatistics effort 5–20% per year, such as 5-10% PhD faculty time plus 5-10% master’s statistician FTE.

    Limited Scope projects: Total biostatistics effort <5% per year
