Training and Education Series
A major objective of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics services is training and education in methods, ranging from basic to cutting edge.
The series generally consists of three types of lectures:
Facilitate collaboration between IDD research and data science community.
- Primer Lectures
Introduce researchers to a topic at a basic level, assuming little prior knowledge. Primers serve as a refresher course, or an introduction into a new area.
- Intermediate Lectures
Target researchers with backgrounds in an area, or who attended an entry-level lecture in the area.
- Partners Lectures
Combine a Vanderbilt Kennedy Center researcher with a Core biostatistical consultant. The researcher introduces the research problem, and the statistician presents a primer about an advanced statistical model and the results it produces. The researcher finishes with conclusions.
