Bioinformatics/Biostatistics Core

Core Co-Directors:

Riyue Bao, PhD
Hong Wang, PhD

The Biostatistics/Bioinformatics Core supports the experimental design, analysis, visualization, integration, and reporting needs of all SPORE, developmental research, and career enhancement projects. This includes projects that generate multiple types of high-dimensional data, including bulk and single-cell genomic, immunologic, and multiplex immunohistochemistry data from patient and animal specimens. The Core leverages the expertise, analytical tools, and data processing and storage capabilities of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center’s Cancer Bioinformatics Services and Biostatistics Facility, which are vetted shared resources that receive Cancer Center Support Grant funding from the NCI. As required, the Biostatistics/Bioinformatics Core develops new analytic strategies, working closely with SPORE project investigators.
