We work closely with investigators to conduct high-quality research using rigorous methodology. The Research Core primarily works with HIPRC faculty and trainees, but we also frequently partner with researchers outside the center from a wide range of academic fields, public health organizations, and all levels of government.
Facilitating New Projects
We find our collaborators benefit the most when we work together from a project’s early stages. Our staff has extensive experience in designing and conducting research, managing and analyzing data, and preparing manuscripts and presentations. We regularly help develop funding applications, with the expectation that appropriate funding for our involvement will be provided if the application is successful. We prefer six-weeks prior notice to assist with funding applications.
Refining Existing Projects
For studies that have already begun, we can support the management and analysis of existing data. After an in-person consultation, we will develop an estimated scope-of-work plan and budget to meet your needs.
