>The Fellow will work on: (1) advancing state-of-the-art computer simulation
>models of breast cancer screening with data from population tumor registries
>and clinical trials; and (2) extending the basic principles of these models to
>statistically infer the progression of in-situ disease to invasive
>disease. The

>team to explain how early detection of in-situ disease impacts the
>cost-effectiveness of screening.
