Our Purpose

The Biostatistics and Data Management Core (BDMC) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) supports investigators from virtually all subspecialties of pediatric medicine and supports studies ranging from small, narrowly defined basic science projects to large, multi-site clinical trials.

The Biostatistics and Data Management Core currently supports more than 50 funded studies and collaborates with investigators on numerous grant applications each year. The BDMC is staffed by a Scientific Director, Deputy Director, and data management/information technology managers, as well as approximately 20 additional staff members representing the disciplines of biostatistics, data management, information technology and administration. The BDMC is located on the CHOP campus (3535 Market Street), and is operated and supported by Westat, a large health research organization with extensive biostatistics, data management and information technology capabilities.

To request BDMC services for a grant submission, please contact Linda Sprouse at sprousel@email.chop.edu.

Also, please send your requests for other BDMC services, such as consultation, analysis, and support with currently funded projects, to Linda Sprouse and she will route them appropriately.
