The NIH Training in Advanced Data Analytics (TADA) Program at the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences is hosting a regular webinar series covering advanced data analytics and data science underlying modern behavioral and social sciences research, with presentations from experts showing the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, causal inference, and various other topics relevant to “big data” and teaching for behavioral and social sciences researchers. On January 21st, Dr. Carl T. Bergstrom from the University of Washington will discuss some of the many ways that selection bias and related phenomena, from right censoring to the “Will Rogers effect,” can arise in medical research and beyond. He will draw from a range of examples, including recent studies on COVID-19. The presentations will be streamed live on Zoom, recorded, and archived on YouTube. To register, visit this link.
