Description: This course on biostatistics will focus on the complexity of data collected in biomedical research. Therefore, the course will focus on topics like sample size estimation, meta-analysis and multi-factorial methods. This course will consist of two parts: (i) a review of some well-known and widely used parametric and non-parametric methods and discussions of basic designs of experimental studies, and (ii) a practical part where the focus is on applying the methods to relevant and realistic data sets collected from medical and biomedical research.
The tentative course program is: • Power analysis and sample size estimation • Meta-analysis and systematic reviews • Multifactorial ANOVA • Repeated measures ANOVA • Multiple and non-linear regression • Survival Analysis
Literature Selected papers and book chapters will be announced to the participants shortly before the course. Prerequisites Biostatistics I or similar knowledge on biostatistics
Evaluation of the course will be based on written reports of selected exercises.
