Thank you Advance-CTR for sponsoring our new web site! Incidentally, Faculty doing Clinical or Translational Research can also approach Advance-CTR for assistance. See their web site for details. We’re all friends working together to support the Clinical/Translational Research mission of Rhode Island.


Our Location(s)

The Biostatistics Core offices are in 2 locations. We spend most of our time on the 2nd floor of the Grads Dorm building at Rhode Island Hospital. Grads Dorm is a long brick building running parallel to Plain street at the corner with Lockwood street. (also houses Employee Occupational and Health Services) Please note the building has no elevator. Stairs are the only access to the 2nd floor. If you need different accommodations, we will be happy to find a more suitable location.

We’ve just started rotating in our new office in the Chief Research Officer Suite on the 1st floor of Coro West, room 1.025. Availability is limited for the moment, but we’ll be increasing our presence over time. We also ask for a little patience as we work out the kinks as this might confuse our calendars initially. We think we’ve got it sorted, but there’s always the chance we missed something.


Appointment Types

While all research at Lifespan is sponsored by Faculty, there are different appointment types for when Faculty & Staff are the lead than for when their Trainees are taking the lead (Graduate students, Residents, and Fellows). If you don’t fit neatly into either of these categories (undergrad or medical student), then please base your choice on the status of your immediate supervisor for the project.


Classes & Labs

– We have a small lab in our Grads Dorm location with 4 workstations with internet access. We leverage this space to teach small applied classes in response to common requests.
– We’re also expanding our REDCap classes to larger groups and locations throughout the state as part of Advance-CTR
