Writing up the statistical sections for a grant proposal or manuscript can be a daunting task for some. These sections are usually scrutinized carefully by reviewers and make a huge difference on the outcome of the submission. Established international guidelines for the various epidemiological study designs will be used to demonstrate how sections within a manuscript or grant proposal can be written.
Arul’s research interest is in Bayesian spatio-temporal models and risk-adjustment models for clinical registry data. He has developed and applied these models on a number of clinical applications in Singapore and Australia. For more than 15 years, Arul has provided consultative and collaborative methodological input to clinicians and hospital administrators, resulting in more than 135 publications in a variety of peer-reviewed international medical journals, several grants and research awards.
