Statistics and Data Science Unit (SDSU) Review

The IDCRC statisticians meet twice monthly to review Extended Concept Proposals.  Please submit your concept at least two weeks prior to the date that you need to receive your feedback (see table below). Use this link to submit your concept and upload any associated documents.  In the online form, please make note if you have a specific timeline consideration (such as needing to have the review completed in time for a meeting), and we will do our best to accommodate.

PIs are encouraged to submit draft concepts to SDSU for stat review during ECP development, especially for confirmatory studies that need to be statistically powered.

PIs submit final ECPs to the LOC admin via If a stat review has not occurred prior to the final submission, then the LOC admin will request a stat review at that time.

Investigators may also request a 30-minute consult with the statisticians by emailing

Of note, the first time you write to this email address, you will receive an email from the "SCHARP Email System" requesting you to verify your email address. You only need to click on the link to complete the verification process once.

Submit by Friday end of day to get feedback by Friday, two weeks later.
