About RDAC


RDAC is DGHI’s in-house methodological core collaborating with researchers to answer the world’s most pressing global health questions.

The Research Design & Analysis Core (RDAC) partners with DGHI faculty, staff, and students to strengthen global health research. We do this by leveraging our expertise in study designs, analyses, methods, and data to create tailored solutions for addressing each question, from beginning to end of the project.

We follow three collaborative principles:

  1. Ask the right questions
  2. Pursue the right solutions
  3. Learn from each collaboration

RDAC is comprised of PhD-and master’s-level faculty and staff with expertise in biostatistics, epidemiology, psychometrics, qualitative data analysis and data architecture. Our faculty director, Liz Turner, and all of our master’s-level biostatisticians have joint appointments with the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. We also have strong connections with the Department of Statistical Sciences.
