Archer To Speak in NLM Series, June 15 in Lister Hill
Dr. Kellie J. Archer will give the next presentation in the National Library of Medicine Informatics Lecture Series. She will discuss “Predicting an Ordinal Response Using Features from High-Throughput Genomic Assays” on Wednesday, June 15 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Lister Hill Auditorium, Bldg. 38A.
Ordinal scales are commonly used to measure health status and disease-related outcomes. Notable examples in medicine include stage of cancer, grading the severity of an adverse event and response of target lesions to chemotherapy.
Archer is a professor in the department of biostatistics and director of the Massey Cancer Center Biostatistics Shared Resource at Virginia Commonwealth University. She works primarily in developing innovative statistical methods and software for the analysis of high-dimensional datasets such as those arising from high-throughput genomic platforms.
The talk will be broadcast live and archived at http://videocast.nih.gov/.
Sign language interpreters will be provided. Those who need reasonable accommodation to participate should contact Ebony Hughes, (301) 451-8038, Ebony.Hughes@nih.gov or the Federal Relay (1-800-877-8339).
