The Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) Program provides investigators with clinical research design and interpretation expertise, including education in research design and analysis.
The BERD program aims to expand the ability to meet statistical and methodological needs, particularly of early-career faculty; provide education in clinical research design with CTSA partners to meet local and regional needs; provide faculty expertise to catalyze development of novel tools and methods addressing barriers that impede clinical and translational research.
