Adrian Raftery: Biostatistics Research

Infectious disease epidemiology | Case-control studies | Survival analysis | Health services

My biostatistics research has focused on dveloping Bayesian methods for infectious disease epidemiology, case-control studies, survival analysis, health services and the analysis of gene expression data. Click here for my gene expression work.
