Explaining Risk to Patients

Explaining Risk to Patients: numeracy made easy
Author: Adelaide Fletcher, MLIS
Date: September 8, 2010
Time: 5:15

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) discusses the importance of giving patients factual data about treatment and associated risks so that they can make informed decisions about their care. Techniques for presenting risk clearly and completely are given, along with suggestions on where to find decision aids.

mRNA Expression Array Technology

mRNA Expression Technology
Author: Tzu Phang PhD
Date: April 4, 2010
Time: 4:16

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) introduces mRNA expression technology: how microarrays are used to measure tens of thousands of gene expression signals simultaneously. It discusses the conceptual basis of the technology, how it is performed, and when it may be employed in research.

aCGH

Array Comparative Genomics Hybridization (aCGH)
Author: Tzu Phang PhD
Date: April 4, 2010
Time: 3:58

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) introduces aCGH: a method to detect variations in the number of gene copies. This technique can be used to identify gene deletions and amplifications that can modify gene expression in potentially biologically significant ways (for instance, in tumorigenesis). It discusses the conceptual basis of the technology, how it is performed, and when it may be employed in research.

EpiGenomics

EpiGenomics
Author: Tzu Phang PhD
Date: April 4, 2010
Time: 4:20

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) introduces Epigenomics, the study of how chemical compounds modify and mark the genome and affect the behavior of genes. Epigenomics is a normal part of cell development (making cell specialization possible), but it may also be altered by environmental agents. Diseases and cancers can be induced not only through changes to the genome, but also through changes to the epigenome. This lecture discusses the concept of the epigenome, microarray techniques to study it, and when those techniques may be employed in research.

Epigenomics Resources:


Alternative Splicing

Alternative Splicing Array Technology
Author: Tzu Phang PhD
Date: April 4, 2010
Time: 5:20

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) introduces alternative splicing (exon) array technology. It introduces the biological concept of alternative splicing: how different splice forms of the same gene produce different gene products. It describes the use of exon microarrays to evaluate alternative splicing, and when these may be employed in research.

ChIP: Chromatin Immunoprecipitation on a Chip
Author: Tzu Phang PhD
Date: April 4, 2010
Time: 3:55

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) introduces techniques chromatin immunopreciptation microarray techniques. Proteins may bind to specific sites on DNA to regulate gene expression. ChIP is used to locate these protein binding sites. This presentation discusses “ChIP-chip” microarray methods, and when they may be employed in research.

Health Literacy

Health Literacy
Author: Adelaide Fletcher MLIS
Date: September 8, 2010
Time: 5:15

This “5x5” presentation (5 concepts in 5 minutes) defines health literacy and describes why it is such an important issue in clinical research. Problems with health literacy are common, affecting one third of adults in the United States. This presentation discusses methods to assess the health literacy of patients, and methods to assess and improve the readability of documents. This information will be valuable to researchers who develop materials for recruitment, surveys, and informed consent.

Care and Feeding of Your Grant
Part 2

Author: Diane Fairclough, PhD
Date: April 15, 2010
Time: 13:27

Diane Fairclough DrPH continues her "hidden curriculum" for researchers, describing how to avoid pitfalls in designing, naming, and encoding response variables, how to prepare for publication even before data collection has started, how to refine the analytic plan, and how to plan for closing single-site and multi-site studies well before the end of the study.
