Some Progress and Challenges in Biomedical Data Science
Thursday, November 9th – 3:30 to 4:45pm
I will discuss some new developments in the application of statistics and data science to medicine, and some challenges that this exciting field faces. Examples from my own work that I will discuss include cancer diagnosis from DESI mass spec data, estimating the number of units of platelets needed by a hospital each day and making treatment recommendations from observational data (electronic health records).
