We hold informal LunchBox sessions about 2 times per month as well as additional special seminars and joint sessions with other groups, where invited speakers share their knowledge and expertise on various health research methodologies and tools from both quantitative and qualitative perspectives. The LunchBox sessions generally run on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm.
Training sessions focus on providing hands-on applications of research methods. Participants learn from various researchers of different backgrounds and expertise about latest analysis, findings from methods use, introduction to new and emerging methods and share topics for discussion.
If you would like to be included on our mailing list for these sessions or workshops please sign up here. If you are a group interested in sharing a session or workshop with us please contact us through email here.
