We support federal agencies and other clients in the public health sector in study development and implementation, data collection and management, laboratory sample collection and processing, biostatistical analysis, and manuscript development.
STUDY DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION
Our research principles are to provide effective solutions, ensure ethical standards in the conduct of research, and produce consistent and reliable results.
MULTI-MODAL DATA COLLECTION
We use multi-modal data collection methods, such as web, mail, telephone, and in-person, to maximize response rates and minimize cost. Our Telephone Research Center supports multiple computer-assisted telephone (CATI) applications.
PARTICIPANT RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION
We identify, recruit, and retain study participants from diverse populations through clear messages and procedures that minimize burden while maintaining interest.
SPECIMEN COLLECTION AND MANAGEMENT
We provide expert consultation and services for all aspects of biologic and environmental specimen handling at our Level 2 biosafety laboratory facility.
ANALYZING AND REPORTING ON STUDY DATA
Our epidemiologists and biostatisticians analyze data from prospective, cross-sectional, and retrospective epidemiologic studies. We have authored and coauthored extensively in high-impact epidemiology, public health, and medical journals.
