Two exciting biostatistics lectures coming this October

2013 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Jacob Bernoulli’s Ars Conjectandi, and the 250th anniversary of the publication of Bayes’ Theorem. These anniversaries led to the creation of the International Year of Statistics (IYoS13). In celebration of IYoS13, OHSU’s Biostatistics and Design Program is honored to support the following guest speakers.
