The goal of the Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) component of the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) is to provide integrated infrastructure for the design and conduct of research that is innovative and statistically sound, with an emphasis on studies in diverse populations. To achieve this goal, BERD will provide high quality methodological support to clinical and basic science investigators throughout the research lifecycle, integrating quality science and cutting-edge methodology. In collaboration with the Translational Workforce Development component, BERD will educate and certify investigators and their research staff to increase their knowledge and expertise in study design and research methods and will develop new methods and approaches to extend and improve BERD’s abilities to address the needs of translational research.
