The topic chosen for ABS04, the 2004 school, was Statistics and Gene Expression Genomics: methods and computations and the lecturer was Mike West (Duke University, USA).
The topic chosen for the 2005 school is Bayesian Approaches to Evidence Synthesis and Decision Modelling in Health Care.
The lecturers are Keith R. Abrams, Nicola Cooper, Cosetta Minelli and Alex Sutton (Centre for Biostatistics and Genetic Epidemiology, University of Leicester, U.K.), Tony Ades and Nicky Welton (MRC Health Services Research Collaboration, University of Bristol, U.K.)
The school will explore the use of Bayesian approaches to meta-analysis and generalised evidence synthesis methods, and the integration of these within an economic decision modelling framework in order to facilitate health-care evaluation and health-care decision making.
The school will make use of lectures, practical sessions, software
demonstrations, informal discussion sessions and presentations of research
projects by school participants.
