Stratified screening for cancer
This project can be tailored to suit an honours, master’s or PhD project scope and would suit a student interested in pursuing a research interest in statistical genetics or public health.
A good understanding of statistics (e.g. use of SPSS or R) and some programming experience would be an advantage.
If you meet the eligibility criteria and would like to discuss a proposal, contact Professor Eric Moses.
