International Research Workshop

Capacity Building in Biostatistics and Analysis


 For Registration (Click here) 



Biostatistics and Bioinformatics have been playing key and important roles in statistics and other scientific research fields in recent years. The goal of this workshop is to stimulate research and to foster the interaction of researchers in Biostatistics & Bioinformatics research areas.


The researchers today not only need to develop skills in carrying out community based researches but also develop skills in analyzing and managing data acquired through the hectic process. The acquired data should be used during the life of project for the purpose of planning, reporting and monitoring of performance.


Proficiency with statistical software packages is indispensable today for serious research in the sciences. SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is one of the most widely available and powerful statistical software packages. It covers a broad range of statistical procedures that allow researcher to summarize data (e.g., compute means and standard deviations), determine whether there are significant differences between groups (e.g., t-tests, analysis of variance), examine relationships among variables (e.g., correlation, multiple regression), and graph results (e.g., bar charts, line graphs).


Research Center is organizing an international online workshop "Capacity Building in Biostatistics and Analysis" on 2-3 March, 2017  (Thursday-Friday) through HD Video Conferencing. The first day of the workshop is designed to understand the key concepts and methods of inferential statistics. The second day will focus on inferential analysis for estimation, comparing groups, measuring associations, seeing relationships and predictive analysis for high quality research.  The participant will use his/her own discipline dataset and will practice with the trainer.


The university/institute wil join us in conferencing room or a computer lab and  the individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected with internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us through email ( or Call us (+92 0312-4415574 +971 523560615, +971 558804464,  +1 905 487 1733).
