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.
Dr. Susmita Datta, Professor in the Department of Biostatistics, recently had her book, “Statistical Analysis of Proteomics, Metabolomics, and Lipidomics Data Using Mass Spectrometry”, published by Springer. This book presents an overview of computational and statistical design and analysis of mass spectrometry-based proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics data.
