Disseminate the Bayesian approach among students and researchers and enable them in their ability to analyze data through Bayesian inference statistical models.

Basic concepts in Bayesian methods (methods of statistical inference, Bayes Theorem, Introduction to Bayesian inference, distribution a priori, methods of sampling Markov Chain Monte Carlo, STAN software); Tools for modeling (Bayesian Hierarchical Models, pets and choice of model); Bayesian methods in practical applications (biossay, longitudinal analysis).
