How to Access CTRC Biostatistical Services

  • When investigators are contemplating use of this core, they should contact Justine Shults, Ph.D., CTRC Senior Biostatistician, at 215-573-6526, email: jshults [at] mail.med.upenn.edu or Ji Young Kim, Ph.D,, CTRC Research Biostatistician, at 267-425-1375, email: kimj15 [at] email.chop.edu.

*To utilize CTRC resources, please contact the appropriate CTRC Core Director for a startup meeting prior to scheduling research subjects.

  • Dr. Shults and Dr. Kim are available for consultation and assistance regarding protocol development, study design, sample size, and analysis plans. Additional support beyond consultative may be provided for junior investigators. Researchers are encouraged to meet with a biostatistician when planning their CTRC research proposals.
  • Due to limited resources, PIs cannot request biostatistics services only; the request must be bundled with other CTRC services.  There is no charge to investigators for this service if support is approved by our Resource Committee.
  • Investigators must submit the request through eCTRC.
