Research Navigation Support for NNE-CTR Investigators

A major goal of the Clinical Research Design, Epidemiology, and Biostatistics Core is to facilitate the appropriate use of these computationally-intensive approaches and technologies in clinical, translational, and epidemiologic studies. Research catalysts at both MMC and UVM help investigators navigate the regional research ecosystem to identify and utilize physical and intellectual resources across the partner institutions to enable their research.
