Training in Reproducible Research on Aging for Social Science and Epidemiology (TRASE)

The UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics is launching a series of new short-course modules, as part of a new program titled “Training in Reproducible Research on Aging for Social Science and Epidemiology (TRASE)."

TRASE aims to improve the reproducibility of research on health disparities and aging. The program will offer four short-courses (each can be taken independently) that cover different aspects of reproducible research, from conceptual to technical. The modules are designed for researchers and consumers of scientific research who want to learn how to evaluate, implement, collect, and integrate evidence in a transparent and rigorous way.

The modules are short (~3-6 days) and intensive, combining lectures (recorded or in-person), interactive activities, and hands-on exercises. Participants can choose to attend one or more modules depending on their needs and interests. The TRASE program leverages the expertise and experience of the UCSF faculty and staff who have successfully developed and delivered other training programs in this field.

Registration is now open for the Fall 2023 module:
