SOCR Consulting

SOCR may be able to provide expert advice, supporting infrastructure, and consulting services to advance your work.

Types of SOCR Consulting

The Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) provides a wide range of consulting services. Consultants include SOCR faculty, research staff and students. Consulting services are offered to academic trainees, scholars, centers and institutes, state and government organizations, industry partners, and non-profit entities. We have mechanisms to provide percent-effort commitment (faculty, research staff) as well as students (GSRA). Typically, these involve longer agreements, but we may provide some shorter consults, as necessary. Example of consulting services include:

  • Research study design
  • Biostatistical (e.g., statistical-power, parametric/non-parametric tests, statistical analyses)
  • Data science (e.g., exploratory data analytics, visualization, ML/AI, statistical forecasting, computational prediction, math modeling)
  • Data management
  • Informatics (e.g., biomedical, health, clinical, analytics)
  • Other (see the SOCR Research Projects)


The SOCR Team includes faculty, staff and students (from the University of Michigan and UCLA).


The SOCR Research Page provides more detailed descriptions of specific SOCR education, R&D, and service activities. In a nutshell, SOCR researchers develop new and customize existing AI/ML/stat-inference tools to model, interrogate, analyze, visualize, and interpret large, multimodal, incomplete, and time-varying data. Specific data types include high-dimensional medical images, omics data, clinical observations, medical and health records, etc. We build, validate and share complete end-to-end pipeline workflows for modeling, prediction, classification, regression, and understanding of heterogeneous biomedical data. SOCR also strongly supports open-science, including FAIR data and SW tools.
