MCDTR Methods and Measurement Core

The MCDTR Methods and Measurement (M&M) Core’s mission is to assist investigators to design studies, collect data, and analyze data to examine questions related to the causes, prevention, and control of diabetes, its complications, and comorbidities. The M&M Core supports investigators through consultation and collaboration, leads work-in progress sessions, develops and maintains centralized resources, and conducts workshops. The Specific Aims are:

The Core includes personnel with skills in epidemiological methods; survey methodology; psychometric measurement; quality measurement and practice profiling; technical aspects of managing, merging, and analyzing large administrative and clinical databases; and advanced biostatistical analysis and economic modeling.

The Core has developed a model to estimate the probabilities of the progression of diabetes and of its complications. The model also estimates the costs and the effect on quality of life associated with these disease states. The program can be accessed by clicking on Disease Modeling
