Frank E. Harrell, Jr., PhD

Professor and Chair, Department of Biostatistics
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

Wednesday, January 14, 1:30-2:55pm, MRBIII Conference Room 1220

Intended Audience: Persons interested in applied statistics, statistical theory, epidemiology, health services research, clinical trials methodology, CTSA, or organization of core services.

VICTR is having a major impact on clinical and translational research and education at Vanderbilt University and Meharry Medical College, and the DBRE program is an important part of VICTR. This talk will cover the goals and functions of the DBRE. Some of the key functions that will be emphasized are protocol and pilot study proposal review, ethical conduct of research, biostatistics clinics, studios, one on one consultations and data analysis, and web resources. Plans and future directions and what we are doing with the national consortium of CTSA biostatisticians and with the Informatics program will also be discussed, as will some of our challenges.

REFACTOR Note: This nontechnical seminar will be of interest to methodologists and to researchers in need of biostatistics and research ethics collaboration and support.
