UAB Nutrition Obesity Research Center Offers 5-Day Summer Courses

UAB’s Nutrition Obesity Research Center will be holding two 5-day short courses at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

June: The Mathematical Sciences in Obesity Research

The mathematical sciences including engineering, statistics, computer science, physics, econometrics, psychometrics, epidemiology, and mathematics qua mathematics are increasingly being applied to advance our understanding of the causes, consequences, and alleviation of obesity. These applications do not merely involve routine well-established approaches easily implemented in widely available commercial software. Rather, they increasingly involve computationally demanding tasks, use and in some cases development of novel analytic methods and software, new derivations, computer simulations, and unprecedented interdigitation of two or more existing techniques. Such advances at the interface of the mathematical sciences and obesity research require bilateral training and exposure for investigators in both disciplines.

July: Strengthening Causal Inference in Behavioral Obesity Research

Identifying causal relations among variables is fundamental to science. Obesity is a major problem…
