Abstract: A major challenge in cancer epidemiologic studies, especially those of rare cancers, is observing enough cases. To address this, researchers often join forces by bringing multiple studies together to achieve large sample sizes, allowing for increased power in hypothesis testing, and improved efficiency in effect estimation. Combining studies, however, renders the analysis difficult owing to the presence of heterogeneity in the pooled data. In the talk, the speaker propose an adaptive group lasso (gLASSO) penalized likelihood approach to simultaneously identify important variables and estimate their effects, and a composite agLASSO penalized approach to identify variables with heterogeneous effects. Simulation studies and an application to the pooled ovarian cancer study will be presented to illustrate the performance of our proposed approaches.
