Project Summary:

The main theme of the research is to develop new methodologies for resolving statistical issues emerging from our team’s long-term collaborations in cohort studies of aging populations and patients with kidney disease. We focus on developing robust and efficient estimating procedures for regression parameters from data with delayed entry in prevalent cohort studies, making appropriate and efficient statistical inference when covariates are subject to censoring and measurement error, and developing new strategies that best model the effects of terminal events on longitudinal measurements. We also plan to develop publicly available statistical software with the goal of dissemination and generalization.
