Biostatistics Seminar: Ying Kuen Cheung (Columbia University) - SMART for Mobile Health

This week's biostatistics seminar speaker will be Dr. Ying Kuen Cheung from the Department of Biostatistics at Columbia University.

Abstract: Precision medicine at its core seeks to provide methodologic solutions to the challenge of patient heterogeneity, and heterogeneous response to therapy.  In developing mobile health, for example, how a user interacts with smartphone apps depends on the system recommendations (actions) in a dynamic way.  While a SMART (Sequential Multiple Assignment Randomized Trial) allows for unbiased evaluation of the optimal action at each decision point, its use in practice could be limited due to the lack of guidance on how such a trial should be designed and implemented.  In this talk, I will discuss the design issues in SMART highlight some recent findings of our group at ROADMAP with regard to sample size and adaptation.

Dial-In Information
