- Biometrical consulting
Head: Georg Heinze
Research Area: Our biometrical consulting service supports clinical research at the Medical University of Vienna. All biostatistical aspects of study planning, preparation of study protocol, and data analysis can be discussed. See our website for details.
- Clinical collaborations
- Explained variation, reference curve estimation, zero inflation
Techniques, methods & infrastructure
Clinical collaborations: Survival analysis, mixed models, regression models
Explained variation: Schemper-Henderson measure, degrees of necessity and of sufficiency
Reference curve estimation: generalized additive models for location scale and shape (GAMLSS)
Zero inflation: one-part tests, two-part tests, left-inflated mixture model
