Podcast: Getting Started with TVEM

September 15, 2015:

This podcast will introduce interested scientists to time-varying effect modeling (TVEM). Host Aaron Wagner talks with Methodology Center stl_savInvestigators Stephanie Lanza and Sara Vasilenko about the new types of questions scientists can answer by applying TVEM to existing data or to new studies.
Sara and Stephanie have been at the forefront of both applying TVEM and training scientists to use TVEM. Multiple participants from their TVEM workshop in June already have submitted TVEM manuscripts to journals. In this 25-minute podcast, they provide the introduction needed to determine whether TVEM could be useful in your work.
