Data Science for Dynamic Intervention Decision-making Center (d3center)

Advancing Intervention Data Science, by Design

Located in the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, the d3c connects scientists and methodologists to advance the field of intervention science.

  • Who we are: We are a group of data scientists from various disciplines, including statistics, psychology, information science, and computer science.

  • What we do: Our researchers use data—and, in particular, randomized trial designs—to learn how best to design a treatment plan for individuals struggling with a variety of health disorders and those in education intervention settings.

  • Why it matters: In many settings, clinicians, education practitioners or other stakeholders often do not know how to create the ideal treatment/intervention plan, that is, one that leads to improved outcomes for the greatest numbers of individuals.

  • How we do it: Our center uses data science tools to discover and design the best possible treatment plans.
