CRMDA Research Consulting Services

CRMDA offers consulting services for faculty, staff, students and non-KU affiliates. Below are the consulting services CRMDA offers:

  1.  ​​Free open consulting for KU faculty, staff and students.  Consultations are provided in 30-minute sessions, Monday-Thursday from 1-5 p.m. during the academic year. Over the summer, please email your questions and contact information and we will follow-up accordingly. For information about scheduling an appointment, please check the Open Consulting page.
  2. Project consulting for in-depth research project support. Full project consulting details are spelled out on the Project Consulting page.
    1. Support includes the following:
      1. Research grant proposal preparation
      2. Statistical and computational support for execution of funded projects and contracts

 Many of our projects use the secure electronic data retrieval and storage system known as REDCap. There is a standard fee for the creation of REDCap accounts, the usage of which is more fully described on the REDCap page.

The basic difference between the open consulting process and research project support is as follows:
During the open consulting process, we advise researchers about what they ought to do and how they should interpret their results.  In research project support, CRMDA staffers take a more active role of helping to prepare code, graphs, and write ups. During the open consulting period, we can discuss a project, but we cannot do a project.  Clients who ask us to write a program or prepare a technical report are transitioned out of the open consulting process into the project consulting sphere. Another difference is that research project support involves a contractual arrangement between the researcher and the CRMDA. Again, for full project consulting details and agreements, please visit the project consulting page.
