The goal of the course is to introduce students to projects where statistics and science meet and interact to produce knowledge. The students will learn to work with clinical/basic science collaborators to elicit the scientific question of interest, design studies, identify the correct statistical analyses tools, and communicate the results in both oral and written form.
