 Title:                An introduction to the design and analysis of nested case-control studies

 Abstract:          Nested case-control sampling is general approach to sampling persons from large cohort studies to evaluate exposure-disease relationships in which “risk sets” defined by failure times are independently sampled. In this talk, I will introduce the design and analysis of nested case-control sampling focusing on examples of studies that have used the approach including a studies of gene-expression score and breast cancer death, therapeutic radiation treatment, and breast cancer risk, and endometrial hyperplasia and the endometrial cancer risk.
