Our faculty supervise and approve all projects that come through the lab. You can expect to work with at least one biostatistics graduate student on your request — they are trained to collaborate with researchers and earn credit for their work in the BCL.

BCL does not provide tutoring or assist in academic coursework such as capstone projects, theses or dissertations. Education activities are led by graduate students under the mentorship of senior graduate students and department faculty.
