Statistical consultation is especially valuable during the planning stage of a research study or a proposal for extramural funding.  The early and continuing participation of a biostatistician always improves a grant proposal and the ensuing research.  Interim analyses are valuable elements of progress reports, and aid investigators in adjusting the course of their research.  The collaboration of biostatisticians in the final analyses, resulting in abstracts for presentation and publications, greatly strengthens the credibility of the study findings to the cancer research community.
