Departmental Seminars

Thursdays 1:30-3:00 pm in MSOB x303

This weekly seminar (running during Fall, Winter and Spring quarters) doubles as a class “Workshops in Biostatistics (BIODS/STATS 260).”

Enrolled students need to document attendance and, if they wish to receive two unit credits,  they must write an essay summarizing one of the seminars and discussing it critically in the context of the background readings.

Suggestions and self-nominations for seminar speakers and topics are welcome: please contact Natalie La Mariana at
