With discussions on many recent developments in Bayesian methodologies, An Introduction to Bayesian Biostatistics considers statistical issues in biomedical research, allowing for greater collaborations between biostatisticians and biomedical researchers. The text presents biostatistical methods from a Bayesian perspective. It includes an overview of Bayesian statistics, a discussion of rates and proportions with applications in clinical and other population-based studies, recent developments in clinical trial design, methods for evaluating censored data and diagnostic tests, and problems resulting from multiple comparisons.
