Responses to COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in the greater Washington DC area, we are following the directives of our respective universities and institutions. As a result, most GHUCCTS physical offices are closed and we have shifted to virtual support for our research faculty, staff and trainees. Our Clinical Research Units at Georgetown University Hospital and Howard University Hospital remain open for ongoing studies that require scheduled visits for already enrolled patients, but not for new enrollments or new protocols at this time.

This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics at MedStar Health Research Institute. Dr. Kolm will discuss meta-analysis. Meta-analysis combines the results of several studies to overcome small samples of individual studies and estimate a "true" effect size of some treatment, therapy, etc. There has been a substantial increase in the number of meta-analyses published in the past few years, but many appear to not understand the potential problems of the method and draw incorrect conclusions. We will examine the method, potential problems, and what can and cannot be inferred from the results.
