Quantitative Science Program

Overview

Based in the Duncan House of Butler Hospital, the Quantitative Science Program (QSP) is a methodological and statistical support and consulting center sponsored by the DPHB and the Brown Department of Neurology. The QSP primarily serves DPHB and Neurology faculty in the form of statistical and methodological consulting; statistical and methodological training via formal workshops and seminars; and through individual mentoring in the areas of quantitative methodology (including research and experimental design, survey and sampling methods, basic and advanced multivariate data analysis). The QSP center also actively collaborates with ongoing and proposed research at Brown and across the nation, and conducts independent and methodologically focused research projects.

Services

The QSP is available to provide limited and short-term statistical and methodological consultation for research proposal development and research projects. This service is supported by the DPHB, and available to DPHB-affiliated faculty, trainees, and staff. The QSP is also available for longer-term commitment, including project data analysis, manuscript preparation, and participation on research projects. There is no fee for initial consultation and proposal development work (power analysis, analysis plan). Data analysis consultation is fee based and will be discussed after the initial consultation.
