Resources are available to help you manage and analyze your data.
ICTR Biostatistics Program
The Biostatistical Resources Core will provide all scholars with 5 hours of consultation time. Scholars may apply for an additional 25 hours of consultation services based on approval of the leadership of the programs and the Biostat Core advisors. Scholars can apply their research funds if additional consultation hours are needed. Consultants assist with a variety of research needs requiring biostatistics expertise, including research study design, design of data collection systems and instruments, data entry and validation, data management and quality assurance, statistical analysis and data interpretation, and professional and scientific report writing. The Biostatistical Resources Core KL2 faculty liaison, Dr. Nae-Yuh Wang, is also available to assist scholars and directing them to specialists.

Do you know about these statistical resources?
The Biostatistics, Epidemiology And Data Management (BEAD) Core is housed within the Center for Child and Community Health Research (CCHR). The CCHR BEAD Core provides research support services that promote, strengthen and expand the research of Johns Hopkins University faculty so that we remain one of the top interdisciplinary research institutions, focused on improving the health and well-being of individuals, families and the communities they live in.
We support investigators at all levels of experience and can provide support across the research continuum: from conceptualization and study design, to IRB preparation, grant submissions, and manuscript development. The research support services include:
- epidemiologic study design and approach
- basic and complex statistical analyses
- power and sample size calculations
- statistical analytic plans
- database development and management services
- survey measurement and sampling
- budget coordination and planning
- GIS (Geographic Information Systems) expertise
- survey field staff coordination
- internal scientific reviews for early/new investigators
The research support services offered by the CCHR BEAD Core enable more competitive grant applications, transforms data into scholarly products, and streamlines complex data gathering.Team science is at the core of our approach.
- To engage BEAD service, contact CCHRBEAD@jhmi.edi
- Upon receipt of your email, we will schedule an initial one hour consultation
- During the consultation, we will assess your needs and, if required, develop a scope of work
- After agreeing on the scope of work and funding, we will complete the work
- A minimum of 1 month lead time is required
JHU Data Management Services (JHUDMS)
Helps researchers in managing, sharing, and archiving their data by providing the following support services:
- Assistance in organizing and preparing the essential information needed for a data management/sharing plan (DMP). The JHUDMS tracks DMP requirements across funding agencies and can help jumpstart the DMP writing process as well as help you consider data sharing and archiving solutions for the proposed research (for example, reviewing repository options and funder requirements for deposit).
- Consultative support and training for the best practices of data management for you and your graduate students. This includes reviewing and mitigating potential areas of data management risk and establishing practices to help support eventual data sharing, whether it be for your future use or use by the wider research community. Subjects covered include de-identification of human subjects, preparing metadata to aid future use and understanding of the data, managing storage and back up, etc.
- Provision of a public data sharing and archiving solution here at JHU through the open repository, JHU Data Archive. This is an archiving option that includes assignment of permanent identifiers (i.e. DOIs) to data collections and organization and description of the data for public access and sharing.
- Best Practices of Research Data Management
Effective data management can increase the pace of the research process, contribute to the soundness of research results, and meet funding agency requirements by making research data easy to share. Johns Hopkins Data Management Services of the Sheridan Libraries provides researchers guidance on data management planning and archives JHU research data for public access through the JHU Data Archive. Join us for an overview of best practices including backup procedures, tips on effective file names, data security and access controls, and data documentation/metadata. This seminar is for faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students from all disciplines.
- "De-Identifying Human Subjects Data for Sharing"
With researchers increasingly encouraged or required to share their data, preparing to share datasets with confidential identifiers of people and organizations are particularly challenging. Join JHU Sheridan Libraries Data Management Services for an overview of techniques for assessing disclosure risk and hiding personal identifiers and Protected Health Information in quantitative and qualitative data, in compliance with HIPAA and IRB guidance. We also discuss preparing consent forms that facilitate data sharing, and keeping identifier data secure during and after projects.
Speakers: David Fearon and Jen Darragh
The JHUDMS team can also help point you to additional data management services and support at JHU. The JHUDMS team is always available to meet with you and can be reached at email@example.com.
Science of Clinical Investigation Program
Translational clinical research requires a team that can design, analyze and interpret clinical investigations and implement studies in compliance with ethical and regulatory norms. This five-course certificate series is designed to prepare clinicians and scientists to participate in multidisciplinary clinical research teams.
- Database Design and Implementation In Clinical Research (Summer term)
- Ethical and Regulatory Issues in Clinical Research (1st term)
- Design of Clinical Studies (2nd term)
- Quantitative Analysis of Clinical Data (3rd term)
- Outcomes and Effectiveness Research (4th term)
Target Audience: Scientists, clinicians, and support personnel fully engaged in clinical investigation or its regulation.
Sequence Overview: All courses (except Database Design) meet 5:30-8:30 PM one night a week for eight consecutive weeks during the academic year. Lectures, case studies and small group discussions with experienced faculty are used to present and clarify the subject matter. Peer critiques of student projects are used throughout the sequence. Students are evaluated by homework assignments, take-home exams and/or a final project. A certificate of achievement is earned for satisfactorily completing four or more courses.
