  • Study Design and Methods for Comparative Effectiveness Research:
    • Instructors: Andrew M Ryan, PhD, & Lawrence P Casalino, MD, PhD
    • Wednesday 4-6pm, Weill Education Center, Location TBA
    • This course will cover the conceptual underpinnings and policy context of comparative effectiveness research (CER), highlighting key controversies. It will provide students with an understanding of the analytic methods and data resources used to conduct comparative effectiveness research. Topics that are likely to be discussed include observational studies, risk adjustment, propensity score matching, instrumental variables, systematic reviews, and the use of clinical registries and Medicare claims data. Students will learn why comparative research has come to prominence, what makes good comparative effectiveness research, and how to conduct comparative effectiveness research. Students will learn the main methods used in comparative effectiveness research and the advantages and disadvantages of each. The course will not be a statistics course or how-to course. Course sessions will consist of both lectures from the instructors and experts on selected topics as well as student presentations.
  • BME 6670: Nanobiotechnology:
    • Instructor: Cynthia Reinhart-King, PhD, Associate Professor, Biomedical Engineering
    • Tuesdays & Thursdays, 11:40-12:55 pm, 8/29/2013 -12/5/2013, Location TBA
    • This course discusses the application of micro and nano-technologies to biological and medical problems. Course lectures are largely from guest faculty with expertise in the presented topic areas. The course covers various fabrication methodologies and state-of-the-art device design. A team design project that stresses interdisciplinary communication and problem solving is one of the course requirements. The course meets twice weekly with 75-minute classes. All lectures are videoconferenced live to Weill Cornell Medical College and other cooperating institutions from Cornell University, Ithaca.
