Annual Workshop

The Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Cancer Data Sciences Program hosts an annual lunch to discuss topics related to biostatistics and computational biology as well as topics from related departments, such as population science and cancer biology. The purpose of the workshop is to bring program members together to learn about emerging areas in cancer research with substantial statistical content and encourage new collaborations. Speakers come from both inside and outside the DF/HCC community.
