Maryland-based information technology and engineering provider Allied Technology Group has won a five-year contract to help a U.S. Army medical research facility in Silver Spring design, analyze and report on projects.
ATG says its statisticians and public health analysts work with the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research to include and exclude criteria, select study subjects, develop analytic databases and analyze statistics.
The company will provide the institute a team of epidemiologists, biostatisticians and administrative personnel for analysis, collecting and entering data, managing databases and programming computers.
Since 2007, ATG says staff members have authored and co-authored articles for 30 peer-reviewed publications and 34 scientific presentations on their work at the institute.
ATG, founded in 1986 and based in Silver Spring, also works with the National Institutes of Health and the departments of Defense, Education, Energy, Homeland Security and State.
The company also holds positions on multiple governmentwide contracts from the General Services Administration.
