"The Summer Institutes for Training in Biostatistics offers opportunities for undergraduate students for training in Biostatistics during Summer 2005."
This program is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and is offered at three sites: Boston University (Lisa Sullivan, PI), North Carolina State University (Dennis Boos and Marie Davidian, PIs), and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (David DeMets, PI).
Summer 2005 will be the second year of this new program designed to introduce quantitatively oriented undergraduate students to Biostatistics. In this program, students learn about the principles and applications of statistical methods in biomedical research through coursework and hands-on experience working with real data collected in major clinical studies. Each of the three program sites has its own unique features, but what they share in common is a well conceived and balanced agenda and an ensemble of outstanding and dedicated investigators who will carry out a highly successful training program.
Participants receive college credit that can transfer back to their home institutions. All costs are covered, including tuition, housing, and meals.
