A research question of both statistical and public importance is raised about whether or not there are hotspots for which the incidence of pediatric cancer is relatively high in Florida. Five independent groups of researchers are invited to apply different methodologies to analyze the same data set with the same general goal. As one of these five study groups, I will provide background of this interesting project of “Analyses of Florida Pediatric Cancer Data” and discuss our own perspective. We propose to identify pediatric cancer clusters in Florida between 2000 and 2010 using a penalized generalized linear model. More specifically, we introduce a Poisson model for the observed number of cases on each of Florida’s ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTA) and regularize the associated disease rate estimates using a fused Lasso penalty. Our analysis suggests the presence of a number of pediatric cancer clusters during the period over study, with the largest ones being located around the cities of Jacksonville, Miami, Cape Coral/Fort Meyers and Palm Beach.

Historically, European “salons” were hubs of intellectual and social exchange. In that spirit, the Center for Imaging Research (CIR) will sponsor Café CIR at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays in MFRC 2063 (Biophysics large conference room). The CIR leadership would like to promote collaboration. To that end, they encourage faculty members, fellows and students to gather and discuss imaging studies, trends and issues. The CIR will provide a variety of beers. View directions to the Biophysics conference room
This is a monthly opportunity open to any MCW faculty, staff or students interested in discussing the ethical, legal and social implications of genomic medicine and technology in a casual setting. Bring your own lunch and join to learn more about genomics and ethics and to hear about ongoing genomics research.
