Abstract

The planning grant will bring together stakeholders including Bayesian statisticians, child health researchers, epidemiologists, trainees and decision makers. We will exchange knowledge on current practices to adjust for multiplicity from testing hypotheses from correlated exposure variables in perinatal epidemiology. The planning activities will shape a research agenda for investigating novel Bayesian approaches and computational tools to support perinatal epidemiology.
