Drop-In Sessions
Research Help Drop-in Session

Drop-in Sessions, sponsored by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) Center, are intended to help Tufts Medical Center/Tufts University researchers resolve questions about study design, statistics, and statistical software including Statistical Analysis System (SAS).

BERD Center Drop-In Sessions are free and staffed by Tufts CTSI epidemiologists and biostatisticians. They can help you tackle clinical research questions, such as:

  • Have I chosen the most efficient and valid study design to investigate this hypothesis?
  • How many people will I need in my study?
  • Which statistical test is appropriate?
  • Could loss of participants be a problem in my study, and how should I handle their missing data?
  • How can I best respond to an IRB stipulation/inquiry?

Research Process Improvement assistance is also available at Drop-in Sessions.

Drop-in Sessions take place every Wednesday from 8:00 – 9:00am at 35 Kneeland Street, 10th Floor Conference Room, Boston.

Conferences & Symposia
Evidence and the Individual Patient: Understanding Heterogeneous Treatment Effects for Patient-Centered Care

 

This conference will explore the inherent limitations of using group data to guide treatment decisions for individuals. Topics will include examining HTE as it pertains to personalized decision making and precision medicine, modifying care in light of more personalized evidence, and identifying the highest policy and research priorities to facilitate translation and dissemination of these methods. This conference will take a broad view of personalized/precision medicine that seeks to take into account the full gamut of patient-level variation (i.e. not just genetic/pharmacogenetic variation). Conference participants will include thought leaders and stakeholders who are developing and promulgating methods for more individualized evidence from academic, government and regulatory sectors.
