The Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) core is built on the strengths of our OUHSC College of Public Health partnered with genetic epidemiology (OMRF), bioinformatics (OMRF, OU-Tulsa) and geospatial/temporal analytics (OU-Norman) to provide unique consulting, training and methodology development for OSCTR investigators. The BERD provides expertise, collaborative support and training to students, trainees, faculty members and health care professionals at all of the partnering institutions.
