Peter Flom is a terrific person to work with on statistics. He has helped me to write several grant proposals to NIHwhich got funded!
Peter has also helped me and my colleagues prepare analyses for papers and in writing up the results. Peter is a very good writer and editorwhich can prove invaluable as well.
On a personal note, Peter is also a lot of fun to work with.
