Methodology Core

The Section has always had a strong core of methodologic expertise.  All faculty have formal training in a related field of study, such as epidemiology, biostatistics, or behavioral science.  Projects within the Section require rigorous methodologic input and oversight.  This is provided partially by the Methodology Core of the Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Center as well as by Section faculty.
