Pencil in the following Biostatistically Significant Event!

The Department of Biostatistics is planning a conference to celebrate the 50th and 60th anniversaries of its creation, on November 13-14, 2009. The University of Michigan's Department of Public Health Statistics was founded sixty years ago. Ten years later it was renamed the Department of Biostatistics. Since then, the Department has developed into one of the top biostatistics departments in the country.

Please join alumni, current/former faculty, and students to reconnect with friends and classmates, to network, and to catch up on how far the department has come and learn where it's going.

The activities will include:
Friday, 11/13: Evening welcome reception and poster session
Saturday, 11/14: Day of presentations from distinguished alumni & past/present faculty
Saturday, 11/14: Evening gala dinner with a keynote speaker & special entertainment
