The BAC is staffed by experienced, Masters prepared biostatisticians and programmers who are mentored by CCEB faculty members. BAC staff are skilled in applying a wide range of statistical methods including (but not limited to) linear regression, logistic regression, mixed models analysis, repeated measures analysis, and survival analysis using tools such as SAS, Stata, and R. Because of its size and depth of collective expertise, the BAC is able to provide customized research support at the appropriate effort level when needed.

To ensure that all analyses are reproducible, BAC staff members are required to adhere to high internal standards for organizing project files and documenting analytic processes. When requested, the BAC is able to assign independent dual analysts or develop annotated code to meet the rigorous requirements of high impact journal review.
