Title: Statistical Challenges, Opportunities, and Strategies in Large-Scale Medical Studies

With the rapid growth of modern technology, many biomedical studies have collected data across different sources (e.g., imaging, genetics, and clinical) in an unprecedented scale. The integration of such ultra high-dimensional data raises many statistical challenges, rendering most existing statistical methods and old data platform no longer suitable and thus underscoring the great need for methodological developments from a rigorous perspective. To address these challenges, I will highlight several key statistical opportunities and strategies in big data integration and analysis through several interrelated projects.

Refreshments will be served at 3:00pm in the 3rd floor lounge of Hanes Hall
