TADA-BSSR Webinar Series
Analyzing Complex Behavioral, Social and Population Health Data for COVID-19 & New Opportunities for Behavioral and Social Science Research (BSSR) Data Science Training
Date: October 15, 2020
Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern Time
Lecturer: Elizabeth M. Ginexi, PhD, NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research
Overview: This inaugural edition of the TADA-BSSR Webinar Series will featured a brief introduction of the new NIH/OBBSR sponsored training program and highlight some of the exciting ongoing work at five of the training sites involving complex data related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Training in Advanced Data Analytics for Behavioral and Social Sciences (TADA-BSSR) Webinar Series is a virtual lecture series that covers advanced data analytics and data science underlying modern behavioral and social sciences research, with presentations from experts showing the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, causal inference, and various other topics relevant to “big data” and teaching for behavioral and social sciences researchers.
The TADA-BSSR program supports Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (BSSR) predoctoral training programs that focus on innovative computational and/or data science analytic approaches and their incorporation into training for the future BSSR health research workforce. The vision of the TADA-BSSR program is to support the development of a cohort of specialized predoctoral candidates who will possess advanced competencies in data science analytics to apply to an increasingly complex landscape of behavioral and social health-related big data.
This series highlights research projects and topics in scope of the Computational Social Science Training Program at BIDS, as well as related programs at other national universities that are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR). The program at BIDS is aligned with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
