Research in the field of biostatistics at our department has a rather short history. It did not exist before 1990, and the first five years of the nineties were more or less a learning period. The number of statisticians at the department (more or less one) did not help, but collaboration with our friends from abroad (first and above all Michael Schemper, then John O'Quigley, Frank Harrell, later Robin Henderson) helped in setting up a research programme that we no longer need to be ashamed of. Through time the team grew to the present 5 permanent positions, 2 part time positions and (presently) two young researchers, following a PhD programme in statistics.
Our main areas of research are survival analysis and analysis of high-dimensional data. Occasionally we work on some topics in bibliometry, and collaboration with other researchers in Slovenia or abroad brings in other research subjects. Specific subjects can be found in our bibliography, here we mention those which persist for a longer time:
- Explained variation in survival analysis;
- Relative survival
- Classification for high-dimensional data
