## BIODS 232: Consulting Workshop on Biomedical Data Science

The Data Studio is a collaboration between Spectrum (The Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational research and Education) and the Department of Biomedical Data Science (DBDS). The educational goal of this workshop is to provide data science consultation training for students. Data Studio is open to the Stanford community, and we expect it to have educational value for students and postdocs interested in biomedical data science. Most sessions are workshops that provide an extensive and in-depth consultation for a Medical School researcher based on research questions, data, statistical models, and other material prepared by the researcher with the aid of our facilitator. At the workshop, the researcher explains the project, goals, and needs. Experts in the area across campus will be invited and contribute to the brainstorming. After the workshop, the facilitator will follow up,helping with immediate action items and summary of the discussion. The last session of each month is devot

After the workshop, the facilitator will follow up,helping with immediate action items and summary of the discussion. The last session of each month is devoted to drop-in consulting. DBDS faculty are available to provide assistance with your research questions. Skills required of practicing biomedical consultants, including exposed to biomedical and health science applications, identification of data science related questions, selection or development of appropriate statistical and analytic approaches to answer research needs. Students are required to attend the regular workshops and participate one to two consulting projects as team members under the supervision of faculty members or senior staff. Depending on the nature of the consulting service, the students may need to conduct numerical simulation, plan sample size, design study, and analyze client data. the formal written report needs to be completed at the end of consulting projects. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisites: course work in applied statistics, data analysis, and consent of instructor.

## BIODS 248: Clinical Trial Design in the Age of Precision Medicine and Health (BIODS 248P, BIOMEDIN 248, STATS 248)

Overview of requirements, designs, and statistical foundations for traditional Phase I, II, and III clinical trials for medical product approval and Phase IV postmarketing studies for safety evaluation. As these methods cost too much and take too much time in the era of precision medicine and precision health, this course then introduces innovative designs that have been developed for affordable clinical trials, which can be completed within reasonable time constraints and which have been encouraged by regulatory agencies. Prerequisites: Working knowledge of statistics and R.

Terms: Spr
