Kristin Linn wins Clint Miller Best Poster Award at 2012 SRCOS

Kristin Linn won the Clint Miller Best Poster Award at the 2012 SRCOS Summer Research Conference in Jekyll Island, GA. The title of her poster was “A Bayesian Analysis of a Thorough QT Study” and was joint work with Dr. Sujit Ghosh. The QT interval is a portion of the heart’s electrical cycle that must be monitored during clinical trials because prolongation of the interval may lead to arrhythmias or cardiac arrest. The work focused on modeling the mean of patient longitudinal QT interval trajectories non-parametrically, and a MCMC sampling scheme was developed to obtain posterior samples of the mean function.
