BSU Seminar: “Using Joint Models for Longitudinal and Time-to-Event Data to Investigate the Causal Effect of Salvage Therapy after Prostatectomy”

Online , United Kingdom

Speaker: Dimitris Rizopoulos, Professor of Biostatistics, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam Summary: Prostate cancer patients who undergo prostatectomy are closely monitored for recurrence and metastasis using routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurements. When PSA levels rise, salvage therapies are recommended to decrease the risk of metastasis. However, due to the side effects of these therapies and to […]

BSU Seminar: “Bayesian behavioural-change epidemic models: is your population alarmed?”

MRC Biostatistics Unit East Forvie Building, Forvie Site, Robinson Way, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Speaker: Rob Deardon, Professor of Biostatistics, University of Calgary Abstract: One of the many difficulties in modelling epidemic spread is that caused by behavioural change in the underlying population. Such changes in the underlying population can result in major changes in transmission dynamics of the disease, making the modelling challenging. We propose a model formulation […]
