BIOS 6302 - LONGITUDINAL DATA ANALYSIS

[3 Credits]
Three hours of lecture per week. This course will emphasize analysis and interpretation of data obtained from subjects measured repeatedly over time. Coverage will begin with traditional approaches to analysis of longitudinal data such as multivariate repeated measures and the univariate analysis of repeated measures as s split-plot model and will quickly lead into models for mean response such as the analysis of response profiles and parametric curve fitting including linear splines. Models for the covariance matrix will be then be considered. Linear mixed models and generalized estimation equations will be covered in detail. Other topics will be covered as time allows. Examples from the health and biomedical sciences will be presented to motivate the material. Prerequisites: BIOS 6102 OR BIOS 6202.
