The Integrated Health Sciences Core (IHSC) is pleased to announce the launch of the Environmental Statistics Discussion Series.
The Integrated Health Sciences Core (IHSC), led by Drs. Marie O’Neill and Veronica Berrocal, is pleased to announce the launch of the Environmental Statistics Discussion Series. The goal of this series is to feature expert-led discussions on statistical concepts and ideas, and best practices that should be of value for non-statistically trained members of the center in their research endeavors. This series was inspired by the “Statistics for Biologists” concept featured in the journal Nature’s Points of Significance column. Currently scheduled discussions will take place on Jan 23 (Rod Little), Feb 13 (Lu Wang), Feb 20 (Cathie Spino), and March 27 (Michael Elliot). Biostatistics faculty members who are interested in leading a future session should contact Veronica Berrocal (email@example.com).
Save the date on March 14th for the Environmental Statistics Day
Featured speakers will include Lianne Sheppard, Professor of Biostatistics and Associate Chair of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington and Brent Coull, Professor and Associate Chair of Biostatistics at Harvard University. The program for the day will involve talks by the two guest speakers and a poster reception open to students, junior researchers and any interested center members. If you are interested in participating, contact Veronica Berrocal (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information
Save the date on March 20th for a panel discussion
Save the date on March 20th for a panel discussion focused on the landmark National Academics of Sciences (NAS) Report: Application of Systematic Review Methods in an Overall Strategy for Evaluating Low-Dose Toxicity from Endocrine Active Chemicals. IHSC and co-hosts will invite members of the NAS committee to provide an overview of the report and discuss implications for hazard and chemical assessment at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and implications for how the agency proceeds under the Lautenberg Amendment to the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA). There will also be an opportunity to feature in-progress research during a poster session reception. If you are interested participating, contact Trish Koman (email@example.com) for more information.
The IHSC continues to provide consultation services to assist Center investigators in pilot grants or full grant proposal development, identifying physical facility needs (in conjunction with the Omics & Biostatistics Core), and support for community-based projects (in collaboration with the Community Outreach & Engagement Core). To request consultation services please contact Meredith McGehee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
