Previous Biostats Seminars

Biostatistics Seminar Series

Biostatistics Seminar: Hongtu Zhu, MD Anderson Cancer Center

Thursday 10/5 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Biostatistics Seminar guest speaker, Hongtu Zhu, PhD, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, will present, “Statistical Challenges, Opportunities, and Strategies in Large-Scale Medical Studies”.

 

With the rapid growth of modern technology, many biomedical studies have collected data across different sources (e.g., imaging, genetics, and clinical) in an unprecedented scale. The integration of such ultra-high dimensional data raises many statistical challenges, rendering most existing statistical methods and old data platform no longer suitable and thus underscoring the great need for methodological developments from a rigorous perspective. To address these challenges, I will highlight several key statistical opportunities and strategies in big data integration and analysis through several interrelated projects.
