Current Priorities in the Department of Biostatistics

  • Faculty recruitment: Recruit leader and support staff for Data Coordinating center; recruit PhD Associate and Assistant Professors.

  • Staff recruitment: Recruit Biostatisticians I, II and III.

  • Financial management: A number of measures have been undertaken to achieve budget goals for FY07. Budget work for FY08 has begun and anticipated due date for the new budget is 2-21-07.
    • We will request credits for professional development support from collaborative departments by January 20, 2007.
    • Restricted center cash management is a high priority; I have contacted VA and State reps.

  • Payroll management: January 16 is next deadline and, as usual, several changes are required.

  • Grants and contracts management: The department database (dbconnect) is an excellent resource and contains updated information about projects (Fed and non-Fed).

  • Space and Facilities: Plans are to use available space in the 2525 West End building until the new building is available (2009).

  • General:
    • Articles in The Reporter about new faculty and other happenings
    • Articles critiquing published papers
    • Ongoing series of articles "What Went Wrong?"
    • Hire a "data cleanup" programmer
    • Create a "one stop shop" for data management, cleaning, and analysis
