Collaborating On Myeloma Research Using Statistical Expertise

CRAB and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Myeloma Center have a long and successful history of collaboration on Multiple Myeloma research. Since 1997, CRAB has provided the Myeloma Center with support for their work as the Statistical Center. The success of our collaboration is demonstrated by more than 120 joint publications, 500 abstracts.

Our contributions include statistical consultation for study design, statistical analysis of clinical trial data and related correlative high-dimensional data as well as editorial support for writing of abstracts and manuscripts.
