NIHR Manchester BRC Networking and Webinar: Making best use of statistical advice and support

NIHR Manchester BRC Networking and Webinar Series

The BRC’s Rapid Translational Incubator signposts researchers to appropriate support when setting up and running trials and studies in GM.  We now run networking events and webinars to discuss solutions to common problems in a supportive peer network. The webinars provide an overview of the support available in Manchester and to highlight an overview of processes/people to contact. 

Theme: Making best use of statistical services

Statistics play a very important role in the design, conduct, analysis and reporting of trials and studies and helps the researcher reach sound conclusions in addressing their research question. In this webinar, Jamie Sergeant will focus on engaging with sources of statistical advice and support in research.
