Congratulations to first year PhD biostatistics student, Tyler Grimes, as he has received a travel award from the International Society for Computational Biology, to attend the 25th Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology and the 16th European Conference on Computational Biology.
On April, 29, 2017, the department hosted its annual spring picnic. All department faculty, staff, students, visitors and their families were invited to attend. This year the picnic took place at Drs. Somnath and Susmita Datta’s home here in Gainesville, Florida.
Each year, the conference invites 6 plenary speakers to present their research on topics that are considered fundamentally important to applied statistical research and applications.
Congratulations to two University of Florida Department of Biostatistics faculty members, Sam Wu, Ph.D., and Yang Yang, Ph.D., who received UF Term Professorship Awards.
The recognition goes to faculty who have a distinguished current record of research and a strong research agenda that is likely to lead to continuing distinction in their fields.
The department hosted a successful workshop titled, Statistical Inference for Biomedical Big Data, on April 7th and 8th. The workshop brought together prominent statisticians to discuss and foster the cutting –edge developments of statistical theory, methods, and tools for biomedical big data analysis.
