Aktivitet: Deltagelse i faglig begivenhedOrganisering af eller deltagelse i workshop, kursus, seminar eller lignende


Twin studies remain highly relevant to health and medical research, especially given advances in biological science and technology which have created new opportunities and possibilities. This workshop will focus on statistical approaches for designs other than the classic twin study, such as the matched case-cotwin design, and non-continuous outcomes such as binary and time to event data. Advantages, limitations, good statistical practices and assumptions of these approaches will also be discussed. Practice datasets and Stata and R code will be provided. The workshop will conclude with in-depth discussions showcasing worked examples from current research.
