Drop in Zoom consultations

Would you like a short one-on-one biostatistics consultation on Zoom? Marlena Maziarz is available for drop-in consultations on Wednesdays at 14.00-16.00. You can join the call without pre-booking, or email in advance to reserve a time slot. 

If someone else has joined the session before you, Marlena will send you a message on Slack to let you know when she will be available. During these sessions, you can ask for support for specific projects. If you have more questions after the short consultation, you can call in the following week or discuss a long-term collaboration on your project with us.
