Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design

The mission of the Research Methods  component is to develop and implement high-quality research tools and methods. iTHRIV facilitates investigator access to these integrated Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) and Regulatory Knowledge and Support (RKS) resources. With iTHRIV’s commitment to collaboration and education/training, the BERD and RKS will also ensure that research design and analysis are rigorous and that all projects remain inside of regulatory boundaries, without hindering progress.
