Statistics in Biomedical Research: Making and Translating New Discoveries

Please join us for a scientific symposium for investigators in quantitative fields from across the NIH and the biomedical research community. The meeting will include invited talks from senior scientists and a poster session for junior investigators. Topics Include: Statistical Issues in Clinical Trials, Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology & Genetics, and Risk Modeling & Public Health Applications.

Special feature: Salute to the public health contributions of NCI's Mitchell H. Gail, MD, PhD

The objective of the symposium is to provide a forum for statisticians from the NIH and outside to exchange ideas about major, upcoming statistical issues that cut across different disciplines of biomedical research. The symposium will be organized jointly by multiple different statistical groups across the different NIH institutes.

The symposium will be comprised of invited talks by senior researchers and by a poster session that is open to everyone. Junior statistical researchers will be especially encouraged to participate in the poster session.

Our goal is that the symposium will become a bi-yearly event that allows statistical researchers at the NIH to connect.
