Jun Zhang of the Department of Biostatistics defends her dissertation on "Interpretable Analysis of Multivariate Functional Data".
The Joint Statistical Meetings, known simply as "JSM", is the largest gathering of statisticians held annually in North American. Faculty and student presenters from the Department of Biostatistics regularly participate giving invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations. Our students often receive top awards and participate in the affiliated career marketplace at the event.
Meetings of the Eastern North American Region of the International Biometric Society (a.k.a. "ENAR meetings") are held in late March or early April each year and reflect the broad interests of the Society, including both quantitative techniques and application areas. Faculty and student presenters from the Department of Biostatistics regularly participate giving invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations.
Biostatistics Seminar guest speaker, Dong-Yun Kim, PhD, Adjunct Associate Professor, Georgetown University, will present, "Continuous Monitoring of Patient Accrual in Multi-center Clinical Trials".
In this talk we introduce Sequential Patient Recruit Monitoring (SPRM), a new and efficient accrual monitoring method. Built on a sequential probability ratio test using Woodroofe boundaries, SPRM is an evidence-based, decision-support tool that provides opportunity for corrective action in a timely manner. Suitable for the modern, centralized data management environment, it requires minimal effort to maintain. The method can easily accommodate protocol changes involving sample size and/or recruitment period modification. We illustrate the method using real accrual data from two phase III, multi-center clinical trials.
