Title: Some Progress and Challenges in Biomedical Data Science

Abstract: I will present some new developments and challenges in working with big data in public health. Examples will include (a) an application of the lasso method for high dimensional supervised learning, applied cancer diagnosis via mass spectometry, (b) predicting the number of  units of platelets that will be needed by a hospital, and (c) "Patients like me"- estimating heterogeneous treatment effects for personalized treatment recommendations.
