Data Science & Discovery Unit

About the DSDU

The Data Science & Discovery Unit provides faculty in CEHS resources and services relating to data management and analysis. Specifically, the DSDU offers:

  • Collaborating on data planning and data analysis for projects or grants,
  • Consulting on data wrangling/handling, database creation, and survey planning,
  • Setting up secure databases of archival clinical data, and
  • Training on the use of various data tools (e.g., REDCap, Qualtrics, R, MTurk, Jamovi).

Although the DSDU has some overlap with the Statistical Consulting Studio (LINK to StatStudio), it is unique in that the focus is on working with data (complex, longitudinal, clinical) including the collection, wrangling, and analysis of the data. The main objective is to aid in working with clinical data; however, other data types are also supported.

Current Projects

If you have clinical data that you want in a secure, research-accessible database wherein you will be able to access de-identified data for research purposes, please contact the DSDU for more information.
