Lectures and Seminars
Celebration of Young Investigators in Cancer Research
The DF/HCC Biostatistics and Computational Biology Program is pleased co-sponsor the first annual Celebration of Young Investigators in Cancer Science.
May 15, 2013
Plenary Speaker: William Nelson, MD, PhD
More information will be posted soon.
The Biostatistics Program hosts a monthly seminar to discuss topics related to biostatistics and computational biology as well as topics from related departments, such as population science and cancer biology. Speakers come from both inside and outside the DF/HCC community.
The seminars are held at 3 Blackfan Circle, Eleventh Floor, Rm 11081 at 12:30pm.
Light refreshments will be available. Click the link above for the most updated schedule.
The Biostatistics Program hosts an annual lunch to discuss topics related to biostatistics and computational biology as well as topics from related departments, such as population science and cancer biology. The purpose of the workshop is to bring program members together to learn about emerging areas in cancer research with substantial statistical content and encourage new collaborations. Speakers come from both inside and outside the DF/HCC community.
This lecture highlights important new developments in cancer or closely related research that involve substantial statistical or computational work. The talk is less technical in nature than a specialized seminar, and it is intended for the general research community at DFCI and the Harvard Medical Campus.
