A service-oriented philosophy was in mind when the administrative staff was reorganized in 1997 in order to meet the dynamic needs of ACRI’s research community. The staff acts as facilitators to ease the administrative burden of sponsored research. At the same time, the office provides an array of unique services, outside the general area of research administration, that have proven to be quite beneficial to the Institute’s cause.

The Biostatistics Core at ACRI provides comprehensive assistance with study design, data analysis, and statistical results interpretation. The core is staffed by two doctoral level statisticians and two master’s level statisticians who are available to support researchers of Arkansas Children’s with statistical applications related to basic science, clinical, health outcomes, epidemiologic, and behavioral research. Our statisticians have knowledge and expertise in SAS, open-source R, and SPSS software packages.
The first hour of consulting is free. Additional support will be charged on an hourly basis
Consulting for grant proposal preparation is free. Costs associated with statistical support needed during the project period should be included in the grant application budget.
Please contact the Core at the conceptual stage of research to ensure quality results.
To request biostatistical support for your research, please contact Senior Biostatistician, Dr. Beverly J. Spray, PhD, by email or phone (501-364-3184).
