We have a statistical support services for all postgraduate students in our department.
This is a unique service to which we direct DRC funds.
It is a requirement for all MMed students in the department to have a meeting with our statistical support to discuss their project at the protocol development stage for DRC approval.
Currently Mr Basera’s time is considerably restricted (10 hours/week), but the DRC has approved an expansion of the statistical support in 2019.
We hope to have the preferred candidate available for statistical support by June 2019.
