CTSI offering NCHS consultation service

The CTSI is now offering a free consultation service for researchers who are looking to use publicly-available data collections offered by National Center for Health Statistics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These databases include:

Dongmei Li, Ph.D., interim associate professor of clinical and translational research, is adept with the datasets, which can be challenging to navigate and analyze.

“These databases are particularly useful tools for new researchers and emerging investigators, because it’s an accessible way to do some analysis on a topic and produce useful publications,” said Tim Dye, Ph.D., director of biomedical informatics for the CTSI. “But they often have complicated sampling schemes, so it generally takes collaborating with someone who can work with the informatics side of it.”

For more information or to schedule a consultation, visit the Research Request Dashboard or contact Li directly at Dongmei_Li@urmc.rochester.edu.
