The Center for Innovative Design and Analysis (CIDA) prides itself on being at the front lines of innovation and inclusivity. In addition to advancements in statistical analysis, design, and data science, CIDA has also taken measures to create a more diverse presence on the campus. With the formation of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) committee in 2020, one of the committee’s objectives was to reach out to students outside of the biostatistics programs and create opportunities for them to learn and work with data.
At least 70% of Coloradans will need to get vaccinated against COVID-19 before the state can safely roll back all public health restrictions, according to a new study led by ColoradoSPH, CU Boulder, and CU Anschutz researchers.
Dean Jonathan Samet and ColoradoSPH researchers Glen Mays, Beth Carlton, and Andrea Buchwald weigh in on the risks associated with indoor dining as capacity restrictions ease from 25% to 50% in many Colorado counties.
Andrea Buchwald, PhD, with the Center for Innovative Design and Analysis and Emiliano Dall’Anese, PhD, at CU Boulder were awarded a $50,000 AB Nexus inaugural grant for their project which aims to contain the transmission of infectious diseases.
CIDA offers statistical expertise, feasibility and study design, and software development to organizations who may not have these resources in-house or are looking for a specific need for their project that other departments might not have the means to fulfill.
Congratulations to Dr. Nichole Carlson, Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics, for being accepted as a Fellow in the 2019-2020, 25th anniversary Class of the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Program for Women.
Short courses are a great opportunity for anyone on campus who is not a professionally trained biostatistician to gain knowledge in the different content areas. We offer a wide-variety of options and we are always open to feedback about topics that the campus is interested in.
Grants are a fundamental part of funding important research studies. Many grants are highly competitive and research has proven that partnering with a statistician at the start of, and during, the grant writing process can improve the chances of a grant proposal being accepted.
Apprenticeships with CIDA are geared toward providing Research Assistants with career growth and developing opportunities. Working with real data allows students to develop and enhance their statistical understanding, but working as a Research Assistant provides more than that.
