1. Aims of the lecture

For properly conducting health related research, basic knowledge of research design and statistics will be given.

In the year 2021, due to COVID-19, the class is given online (Zoom). Please refer BEEF system in detail.

In principle, the lecture is done in Japanese. Foreign students may ask the lecturer individually if necessary.

The text written in Japaneses [pdf format], latest version is on 8th January 2021 is freely available (Comments are welcome).

Caution! There is no lecture on June 9 and July 14. Lecture for experimental data anaylsis is given, but the date is not fixed yet.

At first, I forget that May 6th is National holiday. I apologize all schedule after the 4th class "Research design" has been postponed by 1 week. Due to this chagnge, last mini test became impossible. Thus, I will evaluate the score of this class by report.
