Training in Advanced Statistics in Neuroimaging and Genetics, Feb 15 - 26, 2021

We are pleased to announce the course, Training in Advanced Statistics in Neuroimaging and Genetics, to be held virtually in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the University of Utah:

The University of Utah, with funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, is excited to announce this two-week course. The focus of this course is to learn advanced statistical methods applied to neuroimaging and genetics, within the context of biomarker discovery. This is not an introductory course, and will teach advanced topics, such as Bayesian methods in neuroimaging, network science in neuroimaging, statistical genetics, and multi-modal predictive modeling. Course attendees are expected to already have experience with aspects of neuroimaging analysis and/or genetics. An innovation to our course is the additional 6-month follow-up, where attendees have the opportunity to meet as a group with each lecturer for a 75-minute webinar-based workshop each month. This will allow attendees to interact with faculty well after the two-week period. Additionally, attendees will have access to a slack helpline for questions surrounding implementation of methods.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 course is being offered on-line live at a greatly reduced tuition rate of $250 (USD). There are a limited number of need-based “travel” awards (to cover tuition) available for eligible individuals. Because of the limited class size of 20 to 22, attendance is by application only. Applicants in general must be a US citizen or permanent resident, we do, however, have the ability to accommodate 1 to 3 individuals who do not meet the criteria.

Applications deadline December 10th, 2020.
