Reuben Thomas, PhD

Staff Research Scientist III, Bioinformatics Core

Why do we perform experiments? What conclusions would we like to be able to draw from these experiments? Who are we trying to convince? How does the “magic” of statistics help us reach conclusions? This talk, by Reuben Thomas of the Bioinformatics Core, is open to anyone interested in designing experiments to test hypotheses (e.g., the effect of a drug treatment, gene mutation or disease on gene expression, percent reprogrammed cells, survival time, or mitochondrial velocity).

No background in statistics is required.

Visit the workshop site for more details and materials.

Novice: This is an introductory workshop in the Biostats series. No prior experience required. No prerequisites.

The Gladstone Data Science Training Program was started in 2018 to provide trainees with learning opportunities and hands-on workshops to improve their skills in bioinformatics and computational analysis. This program offers a series of workshops throughout the year to enable trainees to gain new skills and get support with their questions and data.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
