MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series: Non-parametric Statistics

Date Fri, May 17
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom

This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series will be held Friday, May 17, 2024, from 12 PM - 1 PM. This series features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Center for Biostatistics, Informatics, & Data Science (CBIDS) at MedStar Health Research Institute.

The topic of this month's seminar will be Non-parametric Statistics. Classical and Bayesian statistics assume there is an underlying theoretical distribution (e.g., normal, chi-square) that can be used to model the data of interest and thereby obtain probabilities of obtaining the value of a statistical test (e.g., t, F, chi-square). In this session, we will look at distribution-free statistics and probabilities. We will consider statistics based on ranks and statistics based on resampling methods – the bootstrap and the jackknife.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and its partner institutions (Georgetown and Howard Universities, MedStar Health Research Institute, the Washington DC VAMC, and Oak Ridge National Lab) to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
