BERD Data Mining in Health Sciences

The CTSI BERD Data Mining in Health Sciences Series is designed to turn attendees into more educated consumers of statistics specifically with regards to data mining. Attendees will gain an overview of data mining methodology as well as details on classification and clustering techniques with applications in health science fields.

This seminar series is designed for health science researchers interested in learning the field of data mining. The talks are designed for an audience with a quantitative mindset but with only a rudimentary knowledge in statistics and probability. Our goal is to educate health science researchers on when data mining techniques are appropriate and to understand the challenges and pitfalls inherent within data mining.

Learners can also earn a certificate of completion upon attending all workshops live, as scheduled, via Zoom.

All sessions will feature faculty from UB’s School of Public Health and Health Professions

Dates: April 2022

Time: 4:00 - 6:00 PM
