During the 2015-16 academic year, the Harvard Catalyst Biostatistics Program will present a series of talks based on recent advances in biostatistics, but with a focus on translation of those ideas to biostatistical practice. Speakers will provide detailed examples of the application of methods, often including discussion of software, code, and worked examples.
