Biostatistics Research Day is an annual departmental event that showcases student research and promotes interdisciplinary research among graduate students and faculty in Public Health.
This year's speaker is James Dignam, PhD (BIOST '94).
Meetings of the Eastern North American Region of the International Biometric Society (a.k.a. "ENAR meetings") are held in late March or early April each year and reflect the broad interests of the Society, including both quantitative techniques and application areas. Faculty and student presenters from the Department of Biostatistics regularly participate giving invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations.
The Joint Statistical Meetings, known simply as "JSM", is the largest gathering of statisticians held annually in North American. Faculty and student presenters from the Department of Biostatistics regularly participate giving invited talks, contributed talks, and poster presentations. Our students often receive top awards and participate in the affiliated career marketplace at the event.
With the rapid growth of modern technology, many biomedical studies have collected data across different sources (e.g., imaging, genetics, and clinical) in an unprecedented scale. The integration of such ultra-high dimensional data raises many statistical challenges, rendering most existing statistical methods and old data platform no longer suitable and thus underscoring the great need for methodological developments from a rigorous perspective. To address these challenges, I will highlight several key statistical opportunities and strategies in big data integration and analysis through several interrelated projects.
