Harvard Catalyst Biostatistics Consulting Program

Supporting Harvard’s postdoctoral and faculty investigators undertaking clinical and translational research.


The Harvard Catalyst Biostatistical Consulting Program, funded by the National Institutes of Health, supports Harvard postdoctoral and faculty investigators undertaking clinical and translational research. Drawing on a team of highly skilled biostatisticians from the Harvard academic medical and hospital community, the program offers consultations and expertise on a range of relevant areas to researchers as they launch new clinical and translation projects.

The program also promotes the development and mentoring of Harvard Catalyst biostatisticians, as well as biostatistical training for clinical investigators. Statistical services focus on clinical and translational projects in the early stages of development. Typical consultations are between 1-3 hours, rarely exceed 10 hours, and include the following:

  • Grant submission/resubmission
  • IRB submission
  • Protocol review
  • Design for non-grant project/feasibility consultation
  • Analysis planning and advice
  • Assistance with response to a manuscript/journal reviewer


Brigham & Women’s Hospital offers office hours where biostatisticians are available to help investigators on a walk-in basis.
