Biostatistics

in the spotlight

Assistant Professor of Biostatistics Leontine Alkema is lead statistician on a new analysis of global and regional levels and trends in abortion for the 25 years from 1990-2014 which appeared in a recent issue of The Lancet.

Doctoral candidate Stephen Lauer was recently featured in a video on the website LabTV. “Biostatistics is really statistics for public health,” says Lauer. “I’ve always been somebody who looks to help others. I just never realized that I could do it with statistics,” he adds.
