Welcome to CSTAR
CSTAR is the Centre for Support and Training in Analysis and Research. It specialises in the biostatistical and methodological areas of health research, both quantitative and qualitative.
CSTAR, which was supported for its first 3 years by the Health Research Board, is now operating as an independent not for-profit centre based in University College Dublin. An associate unit is operating from the University of Limerick. CSTAR offers a consultancy and training service to individuals, institutions and companies carrying out health research in Ireland.
"The statistician who supposes that his main contribution to the planning of an experiment will involve statistical theory, finds repeatedly that he makes his most valuable contribution simply by persuading the investigator to explain why he wishes to carry out the experiment"
Gertrude Cox (1900 – 1978).
Please note following on from the success of our Summer School and CSTAR's academic commitments CSTAR will be closed for August 2016. Please email UCD@CSTAR.ie and we will revert back to you in September.
