The Hands-on Modeling and Analysis Club (MAC) at Persimune/Rigshospitalet
  • The Modeling and Analysis club will meet regularly for so called hands-on MAC sessions, to discuss mathematical and statistical modeling and analysis of biomedical projects connected with Rigshospitalet and Persimune.
  • The motivation for the hands-on MAC sessions is to share and develop methods and best practices around mathematical and computational modeling and data analysis within Rigshospitalet and Persimune.
  • Any researcher within Rigshospitalet and Persimune is welcome to attend the hands-on MAC sessions to share their experiences and challenges around data and data analysis.
  • All hands-on MAC sessions will be announced internally at Rigshospitalet and Persimune.
  • All supporting material that can be freely shared will be published openly on the web.
  • The main programming language used for the MAC sessions is R and the sessions represent a good opportunity to get support and initiate collaboration around programming and code development.
