Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER)

CESThe goal of the Comparative Effectiveness Research Key Resource is to foster the growth of a productive, well-funded community of comparative effectiveness research (CER) investigators at UTMB. The CER Key Resource includes a core group of senior and junior faculty in the Departments of Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Preventive Medicine and Community Health, and Surgery, and the School of Health Professions at UTMB. The CER Key Resource coordinates CER activities at UTMB, including a weekly seminar where investigators and trainees present preliminary data and grant proposals, review recent key publications in the field, and discuss innovative CER methods.

The CER Key Resource also supports the development of applications for external funding from CER investigators throughout UTMB. Dr. Alai Tan, senior biostatistician in the Sealy Center on Aging, is available to provide analytic support for generating preliminary data. In addition, editorial and administrative support for grant writing and submission are available. The CER Key Resource also offers mentoring support from senior CER investigators to faculty from UTMB clinical departments who would like to seek funding in CER.
