The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health
has named John J. Crowley, Ph.D.,
President and CEO of Cancer Research And Biostatistics (CRAB), as the recipient of the
2013 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science. The lecture will be given
on Friday, May 24 at Harvard.
This annual award, supported by colleagues, friends and family, was
established to honor Dr. Marvin Zelen's long and distinguished career as
a statistician and his major role in shaping the field of biostatistics.
The award recognizes an individual in government, industry, or academia,
who by virtue of his/her outstanding leadership, has greatly impacted the
theory and practice of statistical science. While individual accomplishments
are considered, the most distinguishing criterion is the awardee's contribution
to the creation of an environment in which statistical science and its
applications have flourished. The award recipient will deliver a public
lecture on statistical science at the Harvard School of Public Health and
will be presented with a citation and an honorarium.
