Core Seminars

The Applied Biostatistics Seminar Series consists of a series of talks with the primary purpose of furthering statistical knowledge on an applied level. Talks will focus on advances in biostatistical methods and statistical programming techniques and their translation into addressing biomedical research questions. The seminars are open to all members of the Duke community, but primarily geared toward applied statistical researchers.
