7509 Advanced Topics in Biostatistics with Data Analysis Lab

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course presents modern approaches to the analysis of longitudinal data. Topics include design of longitudinal studies, generalized linear models for correlated data (including generalized estimating equations, generalized linear mixed effects model), computational issues and methods for fitting models, and missing data issues. STATA statistical software will be used in the data analysis component of this course where the students will learn how to analyze and interpret linear models for repeated measure continuous and discrete.
