The CRN in collaboration with the Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Research Design (BERD) program, Biomedical Informatics Program (BIP) and Ethics & Regulatory Program, is pleased to offer Studio consultations to investigators. The purpose of the Studio consultation is to interact early with specialists in clinical study design and analysis to allow for successful implementation of their research projects.
A "Studio" consultation is a term coined by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, & Research Design (BERD) core of Vanderbilt's CTSA program. A studio represents a meeting between a clinical investigator and representatives of the analytic cores of ACTSI, namely ACTSI's BERD, BIP, CRN and the Ethics & Regulatory Program. A studio offers the investigator an opportunity to present an outline of the proposed research and obtain targeted input regarding support from BERD, BIP, CRN and the Ethics & Regulatory Program that will aid in the design, implementation and analysis associated with the proposed study in order to maximize competitiveness, accuracy and reproducibility. In short, the Studio meeting offers a one-stop assessment of a proposed research project in order to outline a detailed plan of action for research success including identification of the necessary expertise in biostatistics, epidemiology, comprehensive informatics and clinical information systems required for a successful project.
