The objective of this FAES Graduate School course is to provide an introduction to the principles and methods of epidemiology, defined as the study of the distribution and determinants of disease in populations. Lectures, problem sets, and outside reading will cover ecologic, case-control, cohort, and experimental studies. Topics to be discussed will include study design, measures of disease risk, sources of bias, methods of controlling for extraneous factors, principles of screening, and interpretation of data. Illustrations will include classic and contemporary examples in acute and chronic disease.

Python is a free, open-source and powerful programming language that is easy to learn. This FAES course is intended for nonprogrammers who want to learn how to write programs that expand the breadth and depth of their daily research. Most elementary concepts in modern software engineering are covered, including basic syntax, reading from and writing texts files, debugging python programs, regular expressions, and creating reusable code modules that are distributable to peers. The course also focuses on potential applications of Python to bioinformatics, including sequence analysis, data visualization, and data analysis. Students also learn to use the Jupyter Notebook and the PyCharm integrated development environment (IDE), which are available at no cost.

R is a free statistics software that is becoming increasingly popular and important for data analysis in biology. During this FAES course, students first learn how to handle the R programming environment. Next, students learn how to simulate data for analysis, while the background for R programming is provided in accompanying lectures. At the end of the course, students become familiar with simple R programming, which they can then apply to their own data analysis.

In this Methods: Mind the Gap webinar, Dr. Max Crowley discusses key standards for economic evaluation as identified by a number of convergent efforts. In particular, the important role of administrative records for mapping the costs and benefits of prevention onto public budgets are discussed. Participants will gain a greater awareness of (1) best practices for economic evaluations of prevention, (2) how to increase utility of estimates for budget making, and (3) opportunities to include economic evaluation in ongoing and new studies.

Many instruments in HealthMeasures are based on item response theory (IRT). IRT is a family of mathematical models that assumes that responses on a set of items or questions are related to an unmeasured “trait”. An example of such a trait may be physical function. IRT models assume a person’s level on physical function (e.g., high vs. low) will predict that person’s probability of endorsing each specific item.

In this Methods: Mind the Gap presentation, Dr. Dempsey focuses on mHealth studies in which both longitudinal and time-to-event data are recorded per participant. From assessing levels of biomarker association with event risk, to defining risk strata for a stratified micro-randomized trial, to post-study analysis of the treatment effect on event risk, he discusses how joint models enter into various stages of the intervention development process. He also discusses how mHealth studies present novel methodological challenges for joint modeling and solutions in several case studies. In each instance, he connects the joint modeling perspective back to how scientists can use them to inform multi-stage decision making in mHealth.
