Biostatistics and Informatics Working Groups

 

Working Groups


Statistical Genomics Working Group 

Statistical Genomics Working Group

This working group provides a forum for those interested in statistical methods in genomics to learn from each other, share ideas, and foster statistical methods development.  The group meets the first Thursday of every month at 12:00-1:00 pm -- lunch provided!  Location alternates between the Anschutz Medical Campus and National Jewish Health.  The group will host journal clubs, work-in-progress presentations, and formal seminars.  The organizers are Debashis Ghosh, Katerina Kechris and Tasha Fingerlin.

 

Imaging Analysis Working Group

This a multi-disciplinary working group collaborating to understand multiple types of imaging data, data processing algorithms, and new data analysis approaches for imaging data.  The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 10:30-11:30 am.  From November 2015 to April 2016, we will review data sources, and from May 2016 to October 2016 we will review pre-processing and data analysis work.  The organizer is Nichole Carlson.

 

Causal Inference Working Group

This group is targeted for biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and all data enthusiasts who are interested in the various aspects of study design and analysis necessary for moving beyond correlation and into causation.  The group meets the second Tuesday of every month, 11:00-12:00, to discuss journal articles over coffee and share ideas regarding causal inference.  Sharon Lutz, Miranda Kroehl, and Sarah Schmiege organize this working group.

 

Joint and Longitudinal Modeling Working Group

Longitudinal analysis studies change in outcomes measured over time for many subjects.  Joint modeling can be used to characterize relationships and changes over time for multiple outcomes, and are especially useful when studying different types of outcomes (e.g. biomarkers, treatments, and survival) that may be closely related.  This working group is currently being formed - stay tuned for details.  This group is being organized by Brandie Wagner and Elizabeth Juarez-Colunga.



 

Network Analysis Working Group

A platform for people interested in learning (more) about statistical methods for biological networks.  We meet biweekly to discuss the fundamentals and advances of the field.  It is also designed for participants to share their own network project progress.  Organizer:  Wen Jenny Shi.
