Next ‘Mind the Gap’ Webinar Features Kadane, Feb. 23
Join the Office of Disease Prevention for a Methods: Mind the Gap webinar with Dr. Joseph “Jay” Kadane on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. ET.
In the presentation, “Assessing the Accuracy of Binary Tests In Vivo Without Assuming a ‘Gold Standard’: Covid-19 and Chlamydia,” Kadane proposes a method to analyze in vivo data from Covid-19 testing, particularly aiming at antigen tests, which give results quickly but do not always give results accurately.
Kadane, the Leonard J. Savage professor of statistics and social sciences at Carnegie Mellon University, is known for his contributions to Bayesian theory, econometrics and a wide variety of fields of application.
