Data Sciences [Core E]
Director - Hakmook Kang, Ph.D.
Core E provides statistical consultation in experimental design, efficient data collection and storage, statistical analysis, and interpretation of findings. Also, we provide consultation in developing big data structures and mining that data to advance IDD research, such large-scale data include BioVU and ImageVU available at VU and VUMC. Through an internal grant mechanism IDD-Reads, Data Sciences Core provides support and training in IDD research for investigators engaging in data science methods.
Internal Grant Opportunity: See IDD-Reads Grant Awards
