Biomedical researchers often want to answer causal questions, but they often have access to observational data, not clinical trials. In this session of the TraCS Biostatistics Seminar series, you’ll learn why causal inference is difficult with observational data and what can be done to allow for valid causal inferences if you have observational data.
