    Quinn Ostrom - New developments in the genetic epidemiology of glioma
    Brain tumors are a rare disease that cause mortality and morbidity that is disproportionate to their incidence. Gliomas are the most common type of malignant brain tumor. There are few known risk factors for these tumors, and validated factors do not explain the vast majority of cases. The objective of this presentation is to describe the most current up-to-date research into genetic risk factors for these tumors, and describe future directions for the genetic epidemiology of glioma .

    Mingyuan Shao - Multivariate Hierarchy and Global Rank Test
    Many clinical trials entail multiple endpoints, reflecting diverse aspects of treatment effects. Traditional approaches analyze endpoints individually, leading to increased type I error or larger required sample sizes if adjustment is made for multiple testing. In addition, small-to-mid-size trials are often underpowered on clinical outcomes with low event rate. A hierarchical composite endpoint, proposed to cover more types of endpoints and take into account relative clinical importance of components, is a plausible alternative approach. We compare different global rank test methods that incorporate non-hierarchical or hierarchical ranking strategies on a composite endpoint, and apply them to data from a randomized clinical trial examining the effect of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibition on progression of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with prehypertension (the AQUARIUS trial).
