Overview

Monday, September 11 - Wednesday, September 13, 2017
Registration will open on May 1, 2017.

The mission of this three-day workshop is to enable young clinical investigators and clinician scientists (MDs and PhDs) with the tools and resources to use epidemiological data to perform cardiovascular translational research, using data from FHS as an example. Mornings will start with discussion sessions in key topic areas led by leaders in the field where they will discuss how they have accessed FHS data to answer career-building questions. The afternoons will be highlighted by hands-on experience on the computer with instruction on how to access FHS data, how to analyze the data, and how to evaluate the utility of the data for collaborations and grant applications.
