Research Design

You have a great idea for a research study. We can help you focus that idea into a clear research question. Based on the research question, we can help you formulate an appropriate methodology. If you already have your research question and study methods, we can offer you an objective review of your plans to anticipate and address any questions or issues that reviewers from research committees or granting agencies might have. We follow the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS).
