  Center for Health Informatics and Bioinformatics:   CHIBI Invited Speaker Seminar: The Vision and Practical Applications of Big Data for Biomedical Scientists --- "Abstract: Dramatic increases in -omic data generation have not yet resulted in dramatic increases in biomedical knowledge, in part because many biomedical researchers find it difficult to successfully apply their domain expertise in a meaningful way. We contend that this is caused by a fundamental usability issue, where expertise in the various computational and analytic models is required to perform the data analysis ? expertise which many do not possess. Here we present improved algorithms in data integration and visual analytics that facilitate discovery in Big Data. The focus is not simply better data processing, but algorithms and tools that promote engagement." , Samuel H.

  Population Health - Division of Biostatistics:   Design of Dose-Response Clinical Trials --- "In the process of drug discovery and drug development, understanding the dose-response relationship is one of the most challenging tasks. It is also critical to identify the right range of doses in early stages of clinical development so that Phase III trials can be designed to confirm these doses. Usually at the beginning of Phase II, there is not a lot of available information to help guiding the study design. At this stage, Phase II clinical studies are needed to establish proof of concept (PoC), to identify a set of potentially effective and safe doses, and to estimate dose-response relationships. Challenges in designing these studies include: selection of the dose frequency and the dose range, choice of clinical endpoints or biomarkers, and use of control(s), among others. Consequences of bad Phase II study designs may lead to the delay of the entire clinical development program or the waste of R&D investment. Misleading results obtained from poor designs could cause a Phase III program to confirm a wrong set of doses, or to stop developing a potentially useful drug. Therefore, it is critical to consider an entire drug development plan, to make best use of all the available information, and to include all relevant experts in designing Phase II dose response clinical trials. This presentation discusses some of these considerations. Biography of Speaker Naitee Ting is Fellow of ASA.
