Alumni Distinguished Professor Joseph Ibrahim has won a competitive renewal of his grant “Inference in Regression Models with Missing Covariates” from the National Cancer Institute. This grant also includes Associate Professor Dr. Hongtu Zhu as a Co-Investigator along with subcontracts to Dr. Ming-Hui Chen at the University of Connecticut and Dr. Stuart Lipstiz at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

The objective of this project is to develop Bayesian and frequentist methodology for model assessment tools in a variety of statistical models in the presence of missing data, including generalized linear models (GLMs), models for longitudinal data, and survival models. The proposed methodology has major applications in chronic diseases such as cancer and AIDS, as well as cardiovascular disease and environmental health. This grant was first awarded to Dr. Ibrahim in September 1997.
