Stata Lunchtime Spring Series: Introduction to Bayesian Statistics

Speaker: Chuck Huber, PhD
This talk will provide an intuitive introduction to the concepts of Bayesian analysis and demonstrate how to fit Bayesian models using Stata. No prior knowledge of Bayesian analysis is necessary and specific topics will include the relationship between likelihood functions, prior, and posterior distributions Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) using the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm, and how to use Stata's Bayes prefix to fit Bayesian models.

Online Screening of "Picture a Scientist"

PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries - including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists - who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

NIH Diversity Supplements Webinar

NIH Diversity Supplements are an underutilized resource that allows administrative supplements to a wide variety of funding mechanisms to enhance diversity in the scientific work force. The mechanism also provides short- and long-term support for faculty members to conduct full-time research. The mechanism allows support for high school students, undergraduate students, baccalaureate and master’s degree holders, graduate and health professional students, and individuals in postdoctoral training.
