Methods for Analyzing Time-to-Event Survival Data Short Course

We are excited to announce a biostatistics short course scheduled for late May featuring Miranda Lynch, Ph.D., assistant professor of community medicine and health care with assignments in the Center for Quantitative Medicine and the Biostatistics Center within CICATS. This short course surveys statistical approaches to analyzing time-to-event survival data which is frequently encountered in biomedical studies and clinical trials. Through lectures and hands-on computer exercises, the course will provide researchers with techniques for analyzing and interpreting survival data using survival curves and Kaplan-Meier estimators of survival functions, as well as regression methods (i.e. Cox proportional hazards regression).

Center for Quantitative Medicine Website Launches

Dr. Reinhard Laubenbacher and the Center for Quantitative is pleased to announce the launch of its website cqm.uchc.edu. The site brings the Center to Quantitative Medicine into cyberspace and was developed in partnership with the UConn Health Office of Communications. The Center for Quantitative Medicine website is designed to share information about the center’s research and education initiatives and to introduce its faculty to the UConn Health, UConn-Storrs, Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, and broader research community.

The site includes an event calendar and news feed, provides links to the CQM social media accounts, and provides information about the center, its history, work, and faculty and staff.

Please check out the site at http://cqm.uchc.edu and let us know what you think!
