Biostatistics Seminar Series

BIOSTAT Student Speakers - Joanne Beeer and Si-Fang (Sunny) Zhao

Thursday 12/1 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

This week's Biostatistics Seminar will feature BIOSTAT students, Joanne Beer and Si-Fang (Sunny) Zhao.

Joanne Beer will present, "Statistics and the Rise of Data Science: A Historical Overview"

Summary: The emerging field of data science continues to be a hot topic of discussion in the statistics community. In this talk I will place the rise of data science into the context of the history of statistics, highlighting a few landmark events, and discuss how statisticians are reconceptualizing their role alongside data scientists in the age of big data.
Bio: Joanne Beer is a 4th year PhD student in biostatistics. Her dissertation research concerns regularized regression methods designed to incorporate prior information into models that use neuroimages as inputs. She is particularly interested in developing and applying statistical methods to problems in psychiatry.
  
Presenter: Si-Fang (Sunny) Zhao, will present, "Poly-pharmacy in Elderly Patients"

Summary: Sunny will present an article on polypharmacy, a common problem in older patients. The WHO has predicted the number of 65 years or older people will reach 1.5 billion by 2050 worldwide. 65% of them had more than two disorders. Polypharmacy has been identified as the primary factor of potentially inappropriate prescribing. It is known to increase the risk of adverse drug reactions due to drug-drug interactions, drug-disease interactions, and medication errors. This research will study the de-prescribe situation for elderly patients in UPMC family medicine outpatient settings. 
 
Bio: Sunny Zhao is a second year MS student in biostatistics.
