    A public lecture by Dr Linda McIver

    Summary:

    Much of our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education starts from a foundation of facts and known answers. This teaches our kids that the point of STEM is to Get The Right Answer, whereas the best thing about STEM disciplines is actually fixing things and solving problems. In this talk I will show how ADSEI is dedicated to raising Heretics, and why Heresy is something we desperately need right now, both in the data science industry and the world as a whole.

    Brief bio:


    Dr Linda McIver is the Founder and Executive Director of the Australian Data Science Education Institute (ADSEI), a registered charity dedicated to ensuring that all Australian students have the chance to learn data science and data literacy skills in the context of authentic projects with real impact. Linda has a PhD in computer science education, and extensive experience teaching at both tertiary and secondary levels. Through ADSEI, Linda now creates engaging data science projects to empower students to use technology and data science skills to make positive change in their own communities.

    The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Section has an exciting international speaker, Katrien Groenhof from the Netherlands, delivering a webinar for SSA members this month.

    Title: A short overview into “how to make a learning healthcare system work”: from linking data, machine learning to ethics 

    Date: Wednesday 27th May,  5pm AEST

    Abstract:

    In current day practice, healthcare professionals are set up with the almost impossible task to translate the daily growing amount of evidence and combine it with all clinical parameters from their patients to what is best.On top of that, value improvement in healthcare is emerging as a response to the growing healthcare costs. The complex balance between multimorbidity, polypharmacy, and potential harms and benefits of interventions, makes care nowadays prone to off label treatment and non-adherence to guidelines, potentially leading to more preventable risk and disease in patients. This sparked the interest into a care system that better integrates clinical practice and evidence: a Learning Healthcare System. A Learning Healthcare System is a continuous cycle of data collection (from routine clinical care in the EHRs), data analysis, interpretation of results, and feedback of potential improvements for patients, healthcare professionals, and policymakers, and implementation of improvements. Using the example of cardiovascular risk management, I will give an overview on how routine care data can be used to improve care, how linkage of data sources is important (and how to do this), and what challenges and pitfalls we encountered.

    Please feel free to email me if you have any burning questions in advance you would like to see answered (t.k.j.groenhof@umcutrecht.nl), I will try to squeeze those into the presentation right away. But I will also make sure to have enough time for questions and discussion. Looking forward to “meet” you!

    Bio:

    Katrien Groenhof is about to obtain her PhD in epidemiology (defense date postponed due to corona virus measures) after she worked 3 years at the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care of the University Medical Center Utrecht under supervision of Prof. dr. M.L. Bots, Prof. dr. F.W. Asselbergs, Dr. A.T. Lely, and Dr. S. Haitjema. Her PhD thesis focusses around the development of a learning healthcare system for cardiovascular risk management. This project connects all care professionals involved in cardiovascular care, but also connects different fields of expertise: from clinicians to hard core data scientists. Katrien combined her PhD trajectory with the Postgraduate Master in Epidemiology at Utrecht University, specializing in clinical epidemiology. She was granted the Frits the Waard Penning for original and outstanding research in epidemiology for her work on cardiovascular risk factor trajectories after hypertensive disorders of pregnancy in 2019. As learning is an essential value to her research, so it is to Katrien as a medical professional: she participated in many teaching activities for medical students and the junior epidemiology association and obtained her Basic Teaching Qualification (BKO) in 2019. She now works as a resident in obstetrics and gynecology in Meander Medical Center Amersfoort and still really enjoys to bring questions from “the field” to the “scientific bench”, solving questions that might directly improve daily care.

    MIGHTY MAPS: Showcasing estimate uncertainty

    Maps may inform or misinform. Conveying the uncertainty associated with spatial estimates is important to prevent misinforming. Uncertainty provides a way to communicate where data is lacking or where a decision maker should focus their efforts in terms of ‘value for investment’. However, despite its importance, uncertainty is less commonly provided on/with maps.

    This 2-part talk will showcase two diverse examples of incorporating uncertainty in mapping: the Australian Cancer Atlas and Vizumap.

    The Australian Cancer Atlas had a mandate to display the uncertainty around each estimate in insightful and innovative ways. Released in September 2018, and freely accessible to all, it remains unique among online cancer atlases. This talk will demonstrate the novel data visualisations, intuitive map display and helpful features.

    Vizumap is an R package to make visualising uncertainty in spatial data more accessible to researchers wishing to communicate uncertainty from spatial information. The methods in Vizumap include the bivariate choropleth map, map pixelation, glyph rotation, and the exceedance probability map. This talk will showcase each of these methods and demonstrate how to use the Vizumap package.

    Leveraging statistical shapes in genomics: looking beyond what’s Normal

    In genomics, we often assume that continuous data, such as gene expression, follows a single type of statistical distribution. However, we rarely stop to question the validity of this assumption, and whether it applies uniformly to every gene measured in the genome. This talk includes studies from my group where a focus on the shape of gene expression distributions, specifically shape diversity, revealed new insights into biology. These studies highlight the value of studying the shape of a gene’s expression distribution as a means to model heterogeneity in the cancer genome. These insights would not have been uncovered using standard approaches that assume a single distribution applies to everyone in a patient cohort. Collectively, this work raises new questions and opportunities to investigate how diversity in statistical shapes can help explain heterogeneity in genomics.

    Biography

    Associate Professor Jessica Mar is a Group Leader at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of Queensland in Brisbane. She leads a computational biology group that investigates how variability in the genome contributes to the regulation of diseases like cancer, or phenotypes like pluripotency in stem cells. A/Prof Mar received her PhD in Biostatistics from Harvard University in 2008. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston (2008-11), and an Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York (2011-2018).

    Having only just relocated back to Australia as an ARC Future Fellow last year in July, her research program has a dual focus that concentrates on modelling the aging process using single cell bioinformatics, and understanding cancer genomics through novel statistical methods. A/Prof Mar has received several awards, including a Fulbright scholarship (2003), the Metcalf Prize for Stem Cell Research from the National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia (2017), and the LaDonne H. Shulman Award for Teaching Excellence at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (2017).

    The Statistical Society of Australia is pleased to announce the following webinar:

    Getting to know our “cell mates”: A practical approach to microbiome analysis through a biostatistician’s lens.

    ·         When: 19 June 2020 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM (AEST)

    ·         Location: via Zoom, check local time, time stated is AEST

    About this webinar

    At one point it was believed that we have 10 times more bacteria than human cells leading to the claim that we are more bacteria than human. It is thus natural that we try and learn more about our living arrangements with our mates. Microbiome research is one of the many fields studying the relationship between humans and bacterial. The field was given a boost in 2008 with the birth of human microbiome project, which facilitates characterisation of the human microbiota to further our understanding of how the microbiome impacts human health and disease. Since then, studies collecting samples for characterisation of microbiome in different area of the body have increased exponentially. So far, a lot has been learnt on how our well-being (or not) is influenced by microbiome. Recent interesting findings include the suspected link between microbiome and autism spectrum.

    This webinar will be a walk-through of stages of extracting insights from microbiome data. Using a practical example, we will start with raw reads from microbiome samples and transform them into information that can be readily used by policy makers and digestible by the general population. Focus will be on the basic concepts and implementation rather than technical details. References will be provided for those interested in technical details and further reading.

    Topics to be discussed will include:

    • Processing of raw reads.
    • Hypothesis definition: Alpha diversity vs Beta diversity.
    • Exploration and visualization of microbiome data.
    • Statistical methods for analysis of microbiome data and their implementation in R.


    About the presenter
    Dr Elasma Milanzi obtained her Doctor of Science in mathematics (Biostatistics) from Universiteit Hasselt, in Belgium. Her areas of interest include; methods and applications for mixed models, survival analysis, dimension reduction and microbiome data. She currently does independent statistical consulting and training, is an honorary research fellow in Biostatistics with the university of Melbourne and heads the Analytics and Research team at the start-up company, Halogen Health. She has more than 5 years’ experience in lecturing biostatistics subjects to postgraduate students at top universities in Australia and Europe. She became interested in microbiome analysis during her collaboration with the Allergy and lung health unit at the University of Melbourne.

    Welcome to the ANZSC 2021 Conference

    The organising committee warmly invites you to the 2021 Australian and New Zealand Statistical Conference, which will take place on the Gold Coast from the 5th to the 9th of July 2021.

    This conference brings together four leading statistical communities in the region – the Statistical Society of Australia, the New Zealand Statistical Association, the International Institute of Business Analysis (Special Interest Group for Business Analytics), and the Australian Conference on Teaching Statistics.

    The aim of this conference is to bring together a broad range of researchers and practitioners across a variety of statistical disciplines to facilitate the exchange of theory, methods and applications.

    With these four societies working together there will be strong program components of interest to a wide diversity of academic, government, and industry colleagues. This includes the full spectrum of delegates from those advancing theoretical methodology to those working on industry applications (in traditional and non-traditional statistical areas). Of particular interest is how Big Data continues to impact all of us.

    Information on Keynote Speakers and the Conference program will be available shortly so watch this space for updates.

    The conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) situated in the heart of the Gold Coast. From GCCEC, Surfers Paradise (the social hub of the Gold Coast) is 5km to the North, the Star Casino and Pacific Fair are immediately to the South (the largest regional shopping and dining destination in Queensland), the beach (Broadbeach) is just ten minutes walk, and the Broadbeach restaurant complex is immediately to the East (short 5 minutes walk). Social tours can easily be made to the rainforest (such as Tambourine National Park and World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park), to places of Aboriginal Indigenous significance, to Stradbroke Island, and to Australia’s greatest theme parks.

    ANZSC2021 promises to be a truly amazing experience on both a professional and a social level.
