Description

Studies based on Mendelian randomization are increasingly being used to distinguish causal relationships from observational associations in epidemiology and to prioritize potential targets for pharmaceutical intervention.  This course intends to explain both simple and more complex statistical methods for causal inference in Mendelian randomization studies, and the instrumental variable assumptions on which they are based.  The course includes computing practicals (R and Stata will be supported).

Course tutors:

Dr Stephen Burgess (MRC Biostatistics Unit / Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge)

Dr Jack Bowden (University of Bristol)

Dr Robert Scott (now GSK, formerly MRC Epidemiology Unit)

Ms Jessica Rees (Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge)

Symposium: On the Wednesday morning 15th November 2017, there will be a half-day symposium that is open to course participants. It is not a formal part of the course, and it will also be open to non-course attendees.
