an IBP member program

Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
The objective of the Iowa Summer Institute in Biostatistics (ISIB) is to provide biostatistical training and applied research opportunities to undergraduates. This program at the University of Iowa is sponsored by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

The ISIB will be 7 weeks: instruction will be through case based instruction of real biomedical research; computer laboratory training; projects; and clinical and translational research enrichment activities.

Coursework will focus on clinical trials, translational research and models used in the analysis of biomedical studies. In addition, the course will serve as a fundamental building block for students to understand the field of biostatistics. Information on opportunities such as scholarships, training grant programs, and assistantships in Biostatistics and Public Health will be presented to students. Students are encouraged to apply to continue their studies in a biostatistics graduate program.
