Through our Biostatistics Seminar Series, offered each Fall, we provide clinical and translational researchers who have prior basic quantitative training in biostatistical methods with a deeper understanding of selected topics and introductions to more advanced methods.
Study Design and Methods Training
To support clinical and translational researchers, we offer a TraCS Biostatistics Seminar Series each fall plus additional webinars co-sponsored jointly by the UNC-Chapel Hill, Wake Forest University, and Duke University CTSAs.
These webinar-based offerings are designed to provide clinical and translational researchers, who have prior basic quantitative training in biostatistical methods, with a deeper understanding of selected topics and introductions to more advanced methods.
The TraCS Biostatistics Seminar Series helps clinical and translational researchers collaborate more effectively with consulting biostatisticians by building deeper understanding of key statistical concepts and methods. Researchers then are better able to:
Our target audience includes clinical and translational scientists who are or will be Principal Investigators leading interdisciplinary research teams that include biostatisticians as team members or consultants.
The series comprises four webinars that build on topics covered in typical introductory statistics courses while highlighting issues and themes that often arise between clinical and translational researchers and consulting biostatisticians in applied research contexts.
We regularly draw attendees from the schools of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry; elsewhere across the UNC campus; and from our CTSA partners N.C. A&T and NC State University.
We offer additional webinar-based sessions at various times throughout the year via collaboration with our partner CTSA groups at Duke and Wake Forest. For a listing of these additional educational offerings, see Duke Applied Biostatistics Seminar Series and WFU BERD Biostatistics Seminars.
