I am looking for a good book on biostatistics from a Bayesian point of view. I am going to be starting some research in oncology and so books geared towards that would be great, but also just a general book on biostats is even better.
There are two chapters that you might find interesting in a book called: Bayesian Nonparametrics by Hjort et al. - ISBN: 978-1107012271
The two chapters are called:
- Nonparametric Bayes applications to biostatistics by Dunson
- More nonparametric Bayseian models for biostatistics by Muller et al.
There is also a Springer book, Nonparametric Bayesian Inference in Biostatistics by Mitra - ISBN: 9783319195179
I found a fairly good list of papers, many by Muller, Mitra and colleagues: https://www.ma.utexas.edu/users/pmueller/paper.html
there are a few people who are strong proponents of the bayesian approach, are well known and have good books out there. Eg from north america you have Don Berry and from Europe you have david spiegelhater:
for a general book geared towards oncology ... i believe Piantodosi is in cancer research and he has a great book:
