Workshop Series: Quantitative Methods for HIV Researchers

The 3rd series of workshops is now open for registration! These workshops will explain how data is generated from the target platform, processing of the raw data, and downstream analysis and visualization.
Priority will be given to applicants who have attended the first two series of workshops. If you did not attend previous workshops, you will need to be competent in the R programming language to benefit.
For this series, you can register for individual workshops. However, workshop 1 is mandatory for anyone registering for workshops 2, 3 or 4 as the foundations of sequence analysis will not be reviewed.

Register here!

The series consists of the following modules:

Part I:    Basic data science in R (Aug – Oct 2019)
Part II:   Design, analysis and interpretation of experiments (Oct – Dec 2019)
Part III:  Modeling, analysis and visualization of multi-parameter data (Jan – Apr 2020)

For Parts I and II, applicants are expected to attend ALL workshops. For Part III, applicants may select one or more workshops of relevance to their research. As these FREE workshops are funded by NIAID, priority will be given those involved in HIV/AIDS research, US citizens/permanent residents, and under-represented minorities. These workshops build on each other sequentially; hence, for Part II, priority will be given to those who have attended Part I, and for Part III, priority will be given to those who have attended Parts I and II. The requirement to attend prior workshop modules can be waived if you can demonstrate prior knowledge and competency in data science (for Parts II and II) and statistics (for Part III).
