The 2020 Summer Data Immersion Program has been cancelled due to Covid-19.

Summer Data Immersion Program

Each year, the Research and Education Core (REC) will sponsor a Summer Data Immersion that will leverage University of Michigan’s considerable secondary data resources to train investigators at all levels (graduate students, post-docs, junior faculty, mid and senior faculty). The specific goals of this national, competitive program are to provide:

  1. Intensive analytic training
  2. Exposure to secondary data sources that can be used for supplementary publications and pilot data for grant applications
  3. Significant networking opportunities. During the five-day program, leaders from ICPSR, NACDA, and HRS at U-M will introduce scholars to major, large-scale, international datasets available to address Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD)-relevant research questions and provide hands-on instruction in the use of these datasets.

2019 Program

Modeling Cognitive Aging in Context

 By all accounts, the 2019 MCCFAD Summer Data Immersion Program was a big success!

Participants represented all career levels and various academic disciplines. The program included didactic presentations, small workgroup meetings, hands-on training in data analysis to address important research questions relevant to Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias, lots of networking, and mentorship opportunities.

The 2019 workshop may be over, but it does not end here. Participants will continue to work with their group members to answer their research questions and develop their publications!
