Penalized Regression with Measurement Error

Time and place: Aug. 28, 2012 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM, Nye Auditorium 13, Domus Medica

Over the last decades important methodological advances have been made for designing and analysing nested case-control and case-cohort studies. While some of these methodologies need further developments before they can be widely used, others have matured to a level that makes them ready to use in epidemiological practice. The focus of the workshop is on the methodologies that are ready to use. The workshop is aimed at biostatisticians and epidemiologists who work with population registry data and large cohorts studies. It is assumed that the participants are familiar with cohort and classical case-control studies and the regression models used to analyse them (logistic regression and Cox regression).
