RCSI Causal Inference Interest Group

The RCSI Causal Inference Interest Group is an interdisciplinary, methodologic interest group, coordinated by the RCSI Data Science Centre. It was established in September 2017.

The group seeks to provide a forum for members to:

  • discuss new developments in the field of causal inference
  • share research in progress

The group combines activities such as journal club presentations with research presentations and seminars from RCSI and external speakers.

We look forward to contributing to the growth of causal inference research within RCSI and at the national level.
