Epidemiology and Public Health Grand Rounds: Individual Prediction in Prostate Cancer Studies Using a Joint Longitudinal-Survival Model

12:00 pm

The Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, Division of Biostatistics, will host grand rounds on Wednesday, November 17 from 12 to 1 p.m. at the Clinical Research Building, first floor, Broad Bussel Auditorium. Jeremy M.G. Taylor, professor of biostatistics at the University of Michigan, will present “Individual Prediction in Prostate Cancer Studies Using a Joint Longitudinal-Survival Model.” Taylor has been heavily involved in collaborations in radiation oncology, cancer research, and bioinformatics. His presentation will focus on utilizing a joint longitudinal-survival model to make individualized predictions of disease progression in prostate cancer. The model is used to give individual predictions of both future PSA values and the predicted probability of recurrence up to four years in the future.
