The field of medical research is one that is vast and growing. Researchers are pushing to find new ways to understand complex medical questions in virtually every field of medicine. My talk addresses how a recent graduate and entry-level employee fits into this research effort. I will discuss how the statistical analysis techniques I learned in college have been employed in an effort to answer those medical questions, as well as how various programming skills and techniques are used on a daily basis.
