The 2009 Cancer Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Bioinformatics Retreat will be held on Friday, December 4th, 2009, from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm, on the eighth floor of the VICC building (898B PRB). The purpose of the retreat is to promote interactions among biostatisticians, bioinformaticians, epidemiologists, clinical investigators, and other translational researchers. The retreat will include several slide presentations that provide overviews of research direction and summaries of ongoing epidemiologic, biostatistics, and bioinformatics research at Vanderbilt, as well as over 30 poster presentations. These presentations will cover recent findings from epidemiologic studies; resources for epidemiologic and translational research; and statistical challenges and state-of-the-art methodologies in clinical trials, observational studies, and basic science, as well as bioinformatics and systems biology approaches to studying complex diseases.
Looks like the retreat is free to anyone who registers using the form on the website below. I'm going, hope to see a few of you there.
