Workshop Series: Quantitative Methods for HIV Researchers

Registration is now closed for Part I of a 3-part series of workshops designed to provide HIV researchers with the quantitative skills necessary for analysis of the large, complex data sets resulting from assays such as single-cell RNA-seq, flow cytometry, fMRI, etc. Each part of the series consists of 6 once-a-week workshops held on Thursdays from 1PM – 4 PM via Zoom, and is open to graduate students, postdocs, medical fellows, staff and faculty. Non-Duke-affiliated applicants are welcome.

The series consists of the following modules:

Part I: Data Science Workshops (Oct-Nov 2020)
Part II: Statistics Workshops (Jan – Feb 2021)
Part III: Assays Workshops (Mar - Apr 2021)

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 III) and statistics (for Part III).

Registration Closed -- Please email kelly.sune@duke.edu with questions.
