Biostatistics, Bioinformatics Workshop Set for Atlanta in May

The 6th Workshop on Biostatistics and Bioinformatics is scheduled to take place May 4-6, 2018, in Atlanta. Hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Georgia State University, the goal of the workshop is to stimulate research and to foster the interaction of researchers in Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. It will provide the opportunity for faculty and graduate students to meet with top researchers in small group settings, identify important directions for future research, and facilitate research collaboration.

The keynote speaker is Hongyu Zhao, the Ira V. Hiscock Professor of Biostatistics and Professor of Statistics and Genetics at Yale University and the recipient of the Mortimer Spiegelman Award. Invited sessions and a poster session are also part of the workshop. Partial travel awards will be awarded to select conference participants as priority will be given to senior graduate students, post-graduate, recent Ph.Ds, junior faculty, and under-represented groups.
