NIMH Workshop: Advanced Statistical Methods & Dynamic Data Visualizations

June 20, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) hosts a two-day workshop on Advanced Statistical Methods and Dynamic Data Visualizations for Mental Health Studies.

NIMH invites basic, translational, and service and intervention researchers from different backgrounds [including but not limited to statisticians, data scientists, computational scientists, quantitative neuroscientists, psychiatrists, psychologists] to register for this timely conference.

Day one: June 28, 2021, on Advances in Statistical Methods and Applications
Day two: June 30, 2021, on Dynamic and Interactive Data Visualizations 

The workshop will have two goals:

  1. Address the role of statistical methods in identifying meaningful effects in large neuro-behavioral samples, administrative data, or social media sources. While effects may be statistically significant in large samples, they may only account for a small proportion of the variance, and the opposite is also true.  In addition, estimating causal effects to inform services interventions will still be challenged by confounding and other factors. One objective of this workshop is to identify best practices for evaluating and interpreting meaningful effects in mental health research.
  1. Showcase advanced methods for dynamic and interactive data visualization. One objective of this workshop is to identify potential use cases and gaps for these new dynamic data visualization tools. There will also be opportunities for participants to gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge visualization tools via interactive tutorial sessions.

The workshop is free to attend, but registration is required. Attendees may register for one or both days. Register today!

For programmatic questions, please contact Michele Ferrante at  or Abera Wouhib at .
