Statistical Consulting Service at NCSU
Laboratory for Collaboration and Statistical Innovation

a platform for statistics faculty, staff, and students to collaborate with investigators on and off the NC State campus. Find out more about L-CSI
The consulting faculty
assisted by the statistical computing support group of the Department of
Statistics serve as a national model for the delivery of statistical consulting
services to campus researchers from the agricultural and life sciences.
This effectiveness is reflected in the high efficiency and validity of
the experiments undertaken by researchers at NCSU and in the quality of
the publications resulting from their research. Consulting encounters frequently
lead to productive collaborative research relationships and produce new
avenues for theoretical research in statistics. Through an arrangement with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
(CALS), support is provided to the NC Agricultural Research Service (NC
ARS) research enterprise through designated faculty liaisons.
We provide consulting to the Clinical Studies Core at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine
for Veterinary Clinical Trials.
