International Research Workshop
 “Mastering Biostatistics Using SPSS and Research Designs in Medical and Health Sciences”

I take this opportunity to introduce you that Research Center for Training & Development (RCTD) is working for the research capacity building of the faculty and postgraduate/graduate scholars through organizing workshops on research methods and methodologies.

Biostatistics provides the essential methodological and quantitative underpinning necessary for much of medical and health sciences researchers. Appropriate study design, data collection and analysis are all needed in order to quantify the effect of risk factors and health interventions on individuals or populations. RCTD is organizing an International Online Workshop “Mastering Biostatistics Using SPSS and Research Designs in Medical and Health Sciences” on 29-30 June, 2012 through  High Definition (HD)Video Conferencing.

The researchers from Universities, Institutes, R&D organizations and Social Sector organizations are invited to participate individually or institutional from anywhere around the world. We will provide live High Definition  Video conferencing of the workshop  in your own office/auditorium/computer lab/home.
