Research Design, Biostatistics and Clinical Research Ethics (DBRE)

The speed at which translational research impacts population health depends heavily on whether the work is disseminated and incorporated by clinical or health service efforts.

In turn, dissemination and incorporation efforts are influenced by the appropriateness and accuracy of the research design and analysis, as well the degree to which implementation is ethically sound.

Therefore, our mission is to develop and provide strong support in research design, biostatistics, and clinical research ethics for Meharry translational research investigators.

Our Specific Aims are:

Specific Aim 1: Strengthen all aspects of translational research design, biostatistical analysis, and clinical research ethics through consultations

Specific Aim 2: Provide key seminars related to translational research design, biostatistics, and clinical research ethics
