Core Summary
The Statistical Methods and Bioinformatics (SMBI) Core focuses on the creation, analysis and management of data produced by TREC@WUSTL, thus playing a key role in integrating research in biological, behavioral, environmental and social factors that influence obesity and its linkage to cancer outcomes. The SMBI Core has two primary activities: data management and data analysis. The core leverages existing university resources, which provide an infrastructure of clinical and translational research information systems to advance TREC research projects, support data sharing and enhance capacity to link with the TREC Coordination Center.
