Biostatistics Training Grant

The primary mission of this training grant is to prepare Biostatistics doctoral students for leadership roles in biomedical and public health research through excellent training and mentorship in genetics and genomics. As a part of the training grant curriculum, students collaborate with Masonic Institute of the Brain faculty on GDC-related projects.

Computing Tool Development for Reproducible Research

June 13 to August 22, 2023
11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
131A Bruininks Hall or via Zoom

This workshop aims to teach students how to take prototyped analytic approaches and develop those approaches into tools that conform to FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) standards and leverage HPC (High-Performance Computing) environments. The workshop comprises a 3-month course designed for researchers with undergraduate/masters statistical backgrounds. Knowledge of at least one programming language needed with experience programming analytic (e.g. machine-learning, statistics, data science, computer science) tools. The workshop is currently optimized for R, so students working with R will benefit the most. The workshop can be taken by students of any age. The workshop will be capped at 16 students to ensure teaching is sufficiently enriched per student.
