SGPGI-NIH Workshops on ‘Scientific paper writing’, ‘Biostatistics’ and ‘Observational Studies’

As part of an Indo-US Collaboration, the National Institutes of Health, USA has sponsored a series of workshops since 2006 on various aspects of clinical research (with an emphasis on clinical trials), including biostatistics, study design and randomization issues, data management, research ethics, and regulatory aspects. As a continuation of this series, three workshops are planned at SGPGI, Lucknow during 2013 as follows: (i) Workshop on ‘Scientific Paper Writing’ on April 19-21, 2013, (ii) Workshop on ‘Basic Biostatistics’ on July 25-28, 2013, and (iii) Workshop on ‘Observational Studies’ on September 29 to October 2, 2013.


All the workshops are aimed at active biomedical researchers who hold faculty positions. Investigators involved in clinical research, who are in a position to lead clinical research studies, should find this workshop useful. This email is to seek your help in dissemination of information about the workshop. I request you to kindly circulate this information in your institution, particularly among those who have appropriate expertise and experience to benefit from the workshop.
