Lectures and seminars CBB biostatistics seminar with Anthony Matthews: "Benchmarking observational studies against randomized trials"
Centre for bioinformatics and biostatistics presents a biostatistics seminar.
Analyses of observational data can be used to complement results from randomized trials. For example, one can benchmark results of an observational analysis against a trial that aims to answer the same question, then subsequently use the observational data to address questions that cannot be answered by the trial. Successful benchmarking increases confidence in the observational analysis. In this talk, Anthony Matthews will discuss process of benchmarking, highlighting several reasons, other than confounding, results between trials and observational analyses may differ.
Before the seminar, a limited number of sandwiches and drinks will be served on a “First come – first served” basis starting 12:00. Show up early and network!
The seminar is held in English.
