The Semel Institute Biostatistics Core (SIStat) is a team of expert biostatisticians, methodologists and research support staff. The mission of the Core is to foster research productivity and quality by helping faculty design sound research projects, obtain independent funding, and analyze data correctly. Grant development services such as design and statistical consultation, power analysis, and analyses of pilot data are available to Semel Institute and all UCLA faculty without charge.

Continuing Core services to funded projects & programs are negotiated on a case-by-case basis. The Core provides investigators from fully affiliated projects and their statistical staff access to SIStat consultation, data analysis and programming services and up to one year post-funding support for final data "clean-up" and analyses, and permanent archiving of data. SIStat also offers fee-based consulting and data analysis to Semel Institute and all UCLA faculty. From time to time faculty of the Core also provides education in statistics and research methods to interested faculty, staff and students.

SIStat services are available to all UCLA faculty including:

Junior faculty who do not have research funding.
Any faculty member preparing an application for extramural grant support.
Extramurally funded faculty who want ongoing, fee-based biostatistical support for their project(s).
Students at all levels enrolled in educational programs at the Semel Institute.
