OVERVIEW: Recent advances in cancer biology have resulted in the need for increased statistical analysis of research data. The Statistical Tutorial is designed as a follow up to Statistical Analysis of Research Data (SARD) held in January 2013. The tutorial will apply the general principles of statistical analysis of research data, including descriptive statistics, z- and t-tests of means and mean differences, simple and multiple linear regression, ANOVA tests, and Chi-Squared distribution.
The tutorial will be held on Monday, March 18, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 4::00 pm in Bldg. 10 - Clinical Research Center (CRC), Room 2-3750 on the NIH Bethesda campus. The participation of NIH clinical and postdoctoral fellows who need to conduct statistical analysis of research data is encouraged.

Links and Related Training Opportunities: The CCR Office of Training and Education has developed a curriculum for the training of NCI clinical and postdoctoral fellows (see Courses and Workshops ). Translational Research in Clinical Oncology (TRACO) is offered each fall. Each winter, Statistical Analysis of Research Data (SARD) is offered and features univariate and bivariate data analysis. The Statistical Tutorial (ST) is a follow up to SARD and features analysis of research data using Excel spreadsheets. Each registrant should bring a laptop computer to participate in the tutorial.
