Statistical issues and challenges in biomedical studies

Columbia University

Thursday, November 3, 2016 - 3:30pm

In this talk, I will present statistical issues and challenges that I have encountered in my biomedical collaborative studies of item selection in disease screening, comparison and identification of biomarkers that are more informative to disease diagnosis, and estimation of weights on relatively importance of  exposure variables on health outcome. After a discussion on the issues and challenges with real examples, I will review available statistical methods and present our newly developed methods.
