Clinical Epidemiology Center (CEC) at the Saint Louis VA Health Care System (VASTLHCS)
The Clinical Epidemiology Center (CEC) at the Saint Louis VA Health Care System (VASTLHCS) was established in July 2013 and serves as a core resource available to VA investigators to support and grow clinical epidemiology research at the VASTLHCS. Since its inception, the CEC has offered a weekly seminar organized around topics of interest within clinical epidemiology including lectures on novel concepts in biostatistics, epidemiology, data visualization, presentations of current research results, and hands-on seminars in statistics, grant writing, and proposal preparation. The CEC provides support to VA investigators in study design, data management, statistical analyses, preparation of grant proposals, and preparation of manuscripts, posters and scholarly presentations.
