Title: Some computational methods for cure models
Authors: Yingwei Peng - Queen\'s University (Canada) [presenting]
Abstract: Cure models received a great deal of attention in recent decades and the new development in models and estimation methods in cure models demonstrates their potential applications in cancer research and other fields. To maximize their potential impact in these fields, we focus in this work on computational methods in some cure models, particularly mixture cure models and clustered survival data with a cure fraction. We show some approaches that have potential to make widespread applications of some cure models possible. Illustration with real data are also given.
