Participants at a DPUK Datathon event

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

The event ran virtually this year from 7-11 March 2022. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for details of future analyst training events.

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

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

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.

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

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