Publications

HRA’s products and solutions consistently withstand the peer-review process and reflect the rigor of our research and HRA’s creative and thoughtful approaches to data analysis. As a result, our work appears as peer-reviewed manuscripts, presentations, and technical reports. HRA team members work closely with investigators to advise them on study methodology, data requirements, and appropriate statistical techniques and, consequently, to conduct the analysis and draft technical reports, presentations, and manuscripts.
