Center for Innovative Design & Analysis

Transforming data into knowledge

We are passionate about data and we work to transform how it is analyzed by partnering with the research community. Our group also conducts original research.​

CIDA also serves as a study design and analytic resource for the CU Anschutz research c​ommunity and the greater Denver region. We collaborate on a wide range of projects including: grant development, short-term analysis, and in-depth partnerships where a CIDA team member becomes embedded in your research unit.   

Our diverse group of biostatisticians, data scientists, and health economists is comprised of faculty members and graduate student apprentices primarily from the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics in the Colorado School of Public Health at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. 

Join us for one of our educational seminars and short courses that enhance the campus' data literacy. 

CIDA Hackathon

Think you can code?

​Test your skills at CIDA’s Hackathon in January 2020.

The CIDA Hackathon opens the doors to resources that allow you to build and develop coding skills through hands on analyses of wearable data. All statistical software can be used to compete in the hackathon.​ Learn more.​

What’s in your data 

Knowledge. Clarity. The Future. Every data set has a unique story to tell, a diagnosis to uncover and an answer that helps you determine the next steps in your research. While researchers may be the expert in the science, biostatisticians and data scientists are the experts in the quantitative analyses behind the science. ​Learn more about what CIDA offers.​
