Medicine: Mind the Gap Webinar Set, Jan. 29

A Medicine: Mind the Gap webinar titled “Time-Varying Effect Modeling to Study Developmental and Dynamic Processes” will take place Friday, Jan. 29 from 1-2 p.m. via NIH Videocast. The speaker is Dr. Stephanie Lanza, professor of biobehavioral health and scientific director at the Methodology Center, Pennsylvania State University.

She will discuss time-varying effect modeling (TVEM), a novel method that enables health, behavioral and social scientists to examine developmental (i.e., age-varying) and dynamic (i.e. time-varying) associations. The goal of the webinar is to generate new research questions that can be addressed using TVEM and to provide resources for researchers interested in using the models in their own work.

Lanza will accept questions about her presentation via email at and on Twitter with #NIHMtG.
