The Survey and Statistical Methods Core (SSMC)

UMass Boston - Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center


Who is eligible to request SSMC services?

SSMC services are available to all current personnel involved in funded U54 UMass Boston-DF/HCC Partnership projects. Services are also available to investigators interested in developing new partnership projects on cancer and cancer health disparities.

What do services cost?

For eligible personnel, up to 10 hours of consultation can be provided at no cost for requests approved by SSMC administrators. For currently funded projects, a specific set of services may have already been budgeted and will entail no additional cost. Estimated costs for services that exceed our current resources will be negotiated with the investigator.
