Project Details

Description

The objectives of this core are the following. 1. Provide statistical and
epidemiologic support to ongoing or planned obesity studies in the
Boston area, which will, in turn, expand the nucleus of expertise and
familiarity with design and analysis issues unique to obesity research.
2. Continue to support the development and maintenance of data sets
amendable to secondary epidemiologic analyses regarding obesity and
nutrition issues as well as to develop and refine measures of obesity.
3. Interface epidemiology, basic sciences, and clinical medicine so that
hypotheses generated by these areas can be tested in ongoing
epidemiologic studies. 4. Train young investigators in epidemiologic
and statistical techniques used for the study of obesity in populations.
5. Disseminate methods/approaches to data analysis to a broad
audience, as Core members gain experience in applying and refining
quantitative methods. 6. Help identify groups at high and low risk of
the development of obesity, and population characteristics for obesity
clinical trials.
