Summer School on Multivariate data analysis methods
        for biological data using the R package mixOmics (passed)

        Course Leaders:

        Kim-Anh Lê Cao (University of Queensland Diamantina Institute)   Pr Kim-Anh Lê Cao (University of Queensland Diamantina Institute) was awarded her PhD in 2008 at Université de Toulouse, France. She then moved to Australia as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Queensland. Kim-Anh is currently leading the Computational Biostatistics Methods group at UQDI and is the head of the UQDI Biostatistics facility that provides statistical support to researchers from her institute. Her research interests focus on the development of innovative statistical approaches for the analysis and the integration of large biological data sets for studies in cancer, and diseases involving the immune system, including arthritis, chronic infections, and diabetes. She has been teaching Statistics to undergraduate and postgraduate (UQ Bioinformatics Master’s program) students for 4 years. Together with the mixOmics team, Kim-Anh continues to develop methodologies to analyse complex biological studies.
          Dr Sébastien Déjean was awarded his PhD in Applied Statistics in 2002 at Université de
        Toulouse, France after spending 4 years in a Biometry lab at INRA (French National
        Institute for Agronomic Research). He then has been working at the Toulouse Mathematics
        Institute as a research engineer. He works in close collaboration with researchers working
        in different areas, such as high-throughput biology, chemistry and information retrieval.
        Sébastien is an expert in statistical data analysis and he contributes to the development of
        several R packages including mixOmics as a core member.
