Funding

Funding provided through the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) represents only a fraction of the total cost required to run the Service. The Service has used these funds to catalyze the development of independent funding and proven the overall essential biostatistical role played by the Service in Cancer Center studies. Service collaborations represent how CCSG funding facilitated the successful development of projects, which then attracted separate funding to support biostatisticians for activities specific to these research grants.
