BioMedware has started new research into taking geographic information into better account when analyzing temporal trends in cancer incidence and mortality rates. The National Cancer Institute has funded a $204,574 grant to BioMedware for this work.
BioMedware’s Chief Scientist, Pierre Goovaerts, Ph.D., will lead the scientific and software development teams to analyze and noise-filter time series of health outcomes at various spatial scales (e.g. ZIP codes, counties), visualize how the parameters of the regression model change in space and across spatial scales, and analyze similarities among time series and their aggregation through multi-dimensional scaling and clustering analysis.
