The ASG at UWE provides statistical expertise across the University offering "stat-chat", a data buddy support system, collaboration, development of new methods and methodologies for research across the University. The ASG is actively involved in ongoing multi-disciplinary and collaborative work with a wide range of research groups across the University.  Collaborative work extends to research groups external to the University. Some of these collaborations are with academic units in other universities but most predominantly with North Bristol Health Trust, providing statistical support for research within the trust both for individuals and for established research groups. This role extends to membership of a number of steering committees and independent data monitoring committees for a wide range of trials.
