Biostatistics Core


The Biostatistics Core at Barrow Neurological Institute provides biostatistics expertise along the entire research study timeline. Our mission is to enhance biostatistics capabilities at Barrow in collaboration with the research centers and institutes at St. Joseph’s Hospital Medical Center and community.

We offer strong expertise in research design and methods, methods of data collection and data management to suit a wide array of project types, implementation of statistical methodology and data analysis, training in research methods, and the dissemination of study results. We also perform interdisciplinary research with scientists at Barrow and St. Joseph’s. The Biostatistics Core is led by Wonsuk Yoo, PhD.
