DPUK's all-new Spring Academy is a week-long series of lectures, presentations and guided tutorials giving researchers an introduction to cohort data analysis techniques.

Participants at a DPUK Datathon event

Designed for students, researchers and professionals with little experience of analysing health or cohort data, the course provides an introduction to analysis techniques with a particular focus on dementia. 

Our expert line-up of presenters, lecturers and tutorial leaders will explore topics including multi-modal analysis, mult-cohort projects, data standardisation, and linear models.

Confirmed speakers include Professor John Gallacher (Director, DPUK), Dr Sarah Bauermeister (Senior Scientist, DPUK), Dr Rosa Sancho (Head of Research, ARUK), Dr Melanie Courtot (Director of Genome Informatics, Ontario Institute for Cancer Research), and cerebrovascular disease expert Dr Atticus Hainsworth (St George's, University of London).

The programme has been designed in consultation with Dr Tom Booth, Senior Lecturer in Quantitative Research Methods at the University of Edinburgh.

DPUK's Spring Academy complements the Autumn Academy, which is aimed at more advanced analysts and which was held for the first time in 2021, and DPUK's Datathon series, which gives researchers the chance to work in multidisciplinary groups on real research projects in the DPUK Data Portal.

The event will run this year from 7-11 March. Sessions will take place virtually. Apply here by the deadline of noon UK time on Thursday 10 February.

Each day will involve a morning contextual presentation and statistical lecture, with a guided analysis tutorial in the afternoon.

The fee for the course will be £100. Payment will be made on acceptance of application.
