There are many research-related activities in our department, ranging from teaching research methods (with Drs. Lisa Avery and Shayne Taback), assisting residents and faculty members with their journal clubs, grant applications, ethics applications, abstracts, and manuscripts for publication, to research project collaborations. As we have more members in my group, we are able to contribute more to the research projects in our department.

We encourage you to contact us at the beginning of your research and we can assist with the following:

  1. Study design
    (research methods, power and sample size calculation) 
  2. Data analysis
  3. Interpretation of results
  4. Connecting with other researchers
    (within or outside our department)
