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.
The BERD aims to:
Provide comprehensive support in research design, conduct and education.
Develop novel statistical techniques and analytical tools to advance research methodology
iTHRIV supports BERD resources pertaining to:
Novel Methods Development
Long-term Collaboration requests
Educational Events / Seminars
BERD personnel from each partner site collaborate to make BERD resources available across the network.
