Interview with Jacobo de Uña, PI for SiDOR, for CINBIO (Biomedical Research Centre)

27/09/2017 | Biomedical Research Centre - CINBIO

“We have a very high degree of internationalization, with collaborators in prestigious institutions from all five continents”

What are the group’s main lines of research and what differences in approach do you have in comparison to similar groups? What are your main added values as a research group? (e.g. cross-disciplinary aspects of the group, established collaboration networks, etc.)

SIDOR group carries out basic research in the field of Statistics and Operations Research. Within biostatistics, our main lines of research are: survival analysis and multi-state models; the evaluation of diagnostic and prognostic tests; regression and prediction in high dimensional data and omic data; and multiple comparison methods.

SIDOR is the only research group with these capabilities in the south of Galicia. Besides carrying out basic research in Mathematics and developing statistical software, it is a group that collaborates with researchers from many diverse fields (Medicine, Biology, Engineering, Economics…). We have a high degree of internationalization, with collaborators in prestigious institutions from all five continents. To demonstrate this, we have just organised the Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics in Vigo for more than 600 professionals in this field from all over the world.
