Work Package 4

Scientific Data Management, Chemometrics and Biostatistics

WP IV is the central interface within the framework of the HICE. It is responsible for the combined statistical data analysis comprising all analytical work packages (WP I-III).

First it has to set up and supervise the data management of all scientific data. Beside this standing facility, WP IV supports the different projects within the WPs with the “design of experiment (DOE)” to guarantee the applicability of statistical methods and documentation of the experiment. A third task is the central analysis and evaluation of scientific data and a basic consistency check. For a comprehensive analysis of the data, results from the WPs are linked
and joint together within and between the WPs for a biostatistical analysis.

Data from all measurement campaigns and exposure experiments are statistical evaluated and comprehensively interpreted with respect to potential biomarkers for health effects cause by aerosols.
