Eleven rising second-year PhD students presented their summer projects to an overflowing audience on Tuesday, August 23. The talks were held in two sessions hosted by Kevin Cummiskey and Maya Mathur. The projects explored the application of statistical and computational methods to analyze data related to genomics, clinical trials, and health issues ranging from coal combustion and air pollution, to breast and prostate cancer. The talks generated a lot of good discussion and were followed by a lively reception.
We look forward to seeing more exciting work from these students in the future!
