News from McGill University
On September 21, 2018, the Biostatistics and Statistics graduate students at McGill University hosted the second annual (Bio)Statistics Research Day and Career Panel. The day featured three keynote speakers: Luke Bornn (SFU and Sacramento Kings), Joelle Pineau (McGill University and Facebook), and James Robins (Harvard School of Public Health). There were also several student and postdoc presentations, and the day concluded with a career panel and a networking wine and cheese.
The event was attended by more than 90 participants, and was entirely student-run (Organizing committee: Simon Chatelain, Steve Ferreira, Yu Luo and Guanbo Wang) with financial support from CANSSI, the departments of Mathematics & Statistics and Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Occupational Health, the McGill Health Statistics Training Network, and the Post-Graduate Students’ Society of McGill University.
