Workshops to Amplify Your Skills

Whether you’re a trainee seeking to cultivate your skills or a faculty member looking to fine-tune your process, we also offer focused workshops that will take your research to the next level.  Workshops are scheduled frequently over the year and include the topics listed above as well as other topics such as how to read and write scientific paper and understanding/conducting systematic reviews/meta-analysis.

Workshops are geared toward increasing the knowledge base of individuals with limited research experience.

Free Service for Unfunded Projects

We recommend that you contact us at least six weeks prior to your research deadlines. Briefly describe the project and include your contact information. A staff member will get back to you within two business days to schedule your consultation.

Schedule a Consultation

It is always best to consult with us prior to conduction of a research study.

“To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.”

-Sir Ronald Fisher (1890 – 1962)
