The Research Methods Core promotes a user-centered support structure to assist clinical and translational research (CTR) investigators in identifying the best source of assistance in study design, analysis, and interpretation.
Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD)
BERD supports the design and analyses of CTR ; facilitates a single-portal, user-centered support structure to assist CTR investigators in identifying the best source of assistance in study design, analysis, and interpretation; and develops new tools and methods, while disseminating such tools and methods across the national CTSA network as efficiently as possible.
RKS coordinates the multiple units responsible for quality and compliance improvement. This program is responsible for developing standard operating procedures, clinical trial policies, and best practices, as well as disseminating this information to our faculty and staff.
