This year the MRC P30 Summer Educational Series will be focused on practical applications of statistics. Kim Trinkaus and Esther Lu in the Biostatistics Shared Resource of Siteman Cancer Center will first discuss data visualization and how this can inform the statistical approach to its analysis.

For the next 2 weeks, we will use a hands-on workshop format to discuss common scenarios encountered in our field. In each session, 3 sets of data (each for a different scenario) will be covered. Participants will break into small groups (of 3-4) and use GraphPad Prism or similar software to analyze one set of data. After ~30 min work time, all participants will gather and discuss the approaches chosen for analysis and presentation of results. The goal is to provide practical training in appropriate analysis methods, common pitfalls, and ways to effectively present results. This is not training in the use of Prism itself. Prior to the sessions, a survey will be circulated to organize the groups and ensure a laptop with software for each one.

The final session will be a presentation on a new Arthritis Models MRC core presented by its Director.


Please take the SES Survey.
