Specific Aims
  • Provide outreach and translation of risk characterization information.
  • Develop new methods for biostatistical evaluation of Center studies, including dose-response assessment methods to improve risk characterization and new risk characterization methods to better inform risk management.
  • Provide statistical collaboration and consultation on study design, data analysis, manuscript writing, and interpretation of results for their impacts on children.
