Workshop on Conducting Literature Review and Data Analysis in Medical Research

Medical research in one field of research which looks for new findings that helps the society at large. The vaccine for COVID is a best example, which has saved the world from the deadly virus. Researchers strive hard day and night to give the best results, which are more practical in nature. 
 
Among other aspects, data plays an important role in bringing out these results. Unlike in other research, large data sets may not be available, and researchers may have to reply on data sets of smaller sizes. Now, it is important for them to analyse the data appropriately using the right statistical method. Sometimes, the data needs to be collected from the existing literature and summarize the same to give out the results. This demands the conduct of literature review in a right way and sometimes demands the use of technology, and one must get trained in using the same. To achieve the needed expertise, the researcher must get trained in usage of a tool and one such tool which is handy for everyone is Excel and getting trained in using the same will make them independent in analysing the data. 
 
Taking these needs, we at SDMIMD have planned a two-day workshop in conduct of literature review using technology, usage of excel for data analysis and selection of the right statistical method for testing the hypotheses. It gives the participants a hands-on experience on conducting the literature review, collecting and analysing the data, and construction and testing of the hypothesis.

Orientation for the Awareness Program on Cyber Crime

'Technological advancement and the pandemic situation have changed modern life. The Internet allows us to use these technologies and connect to wider services and facilities. In a nutshell, the Internet touches almost all aspects of our lives. However, it also makes us vulnerable to a wide range of threats. New and powerful cyber-attacks are striking the Internet regularly. A minor lapse in managing our digital lives can open the door to cybercriminals' thus said Mr Anil Kumar N., Police Sub Inspector, Cyber Economic and Narcotics Crime (CEN) Police Station, Mysore. 
 
Mr Anil Kumar addressed the SDMIMD students involved in the Social Research Project (SRP) on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Students have taken up the initiative to conduct a study to identify the need for an awareness program about Cyber Security among High School Students in the City as part of the Socially Relevant Project (SRP) of the academic program. 
 
The talk by Mr Anil Kumar sensitized the students involved in this initiative about the cyber crimes seen in the online classes, gaming, uploading content in social media, shopping websites, fake news, dating apps and other internet-enabled services. 
 
Speaking on occasion, Dr S.N. Prasad, Deputy Director, SDMIMD, said that awareness about Cyber Security is essential for all segments of society. It is more relevant to educate the parents who give their mobile phones and access to the OTT (Over The Top) platforms for entertainment like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, etc.
 
Mr Siddesh M.L., Police Sub-Inspector, Cyber Economic and Narcotics Crime (CEN) Police Station, Mysore and Dr Sunil M.V., Head-Academic Administration, SDMIMD, Mysore and the project supervisor, were present.
