We are a team of over 40 biostatisticians, epidemiologists, statistical geneticists, health economists, psychometricians, and survey design researchers with a mission to advance high quality research at the University of Utah and affiliated institutions.

The following navigation bar describes a typical research process for collaborating with SDBC members on a manuscript. If you are looking for assistance with a grant proposal, you may benefit from reading the Get Started, Request Collaboration, and the grant preparation pages.

Please Note: In order to help prevent the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19, our staff is now working off-site. You can still request to work with us by clicking the “Request Collaboration” link, however, be prepared for meetings to be hosted via conference call/Zoom/Teams.
We apologize for any inconvenience at this time. We value our work with you and look forward to more beneficial collaborations in the future.
