The primary CISER research objective is to expand WSU research activities by improving the quality of statistical analyses in WSU proposals, projects and papers. To further this objective, CISER hopes to:
- Lead on statistically oriented training grants and statistics-focused research projects;
- Collaborate on proposals and projects requiring statistical expertise through direct funding of staff;
- Facilitate affiliate faculty collaborations by maintaining an online listing of faculty with statistical expertise and actively referring these faculty to researchers needing their expertise; and
- Monitor collaboration agreements to ensure that statistical research contributions are recognized through co-PI status, funding and co-authorship.
