Our Purpose

The Biostatistics and Data Management Core (BDMC) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) supports investigators from virtually all subspecialties of pediatric medicine and supports studies ranging from small, narrowly defined basic science projects to large, multi-site clinical trials.

The Biostatistics and Data Management Core currently supports more than 50 funded studies and collaborates with investigators on numerous grant applications each year. The BDMC is staffed by Biostatistics and Data Management Co-Directors and additional staff members representing the disciplines of biostatistics, data management, information technology, and administration. The BDMC is located on the CHOP campus (Roberts Center, 9th floor), and is operated and supported by Westat, a large health research organization with extensive biostatistics, data management and information technology capabilities.
