UMN Biostatistics Student Seminar

2021-2022

Student Seminar is a bi-weekly seminar series that focuses on student research in the Biostatistics division. Our goal is to enhance students' public speaking abilities in a casual, student-only environment. Both PhD students and MS students are encouraged to present! Presentations can be on a variety of topics, including:

  1. Your own research! A good opportunity to do a test run of a research presentation.
  2. Share your skills! In the past, students have presented on useful R packages or their experiences with the job application process.
  3. Journal-club format - select a paper by someone who is giving a Wednesday Division of Biostatistics seminar (check out the schedule) and introduce us to the topics, with a short discussion!

This school year marks the 7th year of student seminars for the Biostatistics division. The organizers are Jennifer Proper (prope012@umn.edu) and Rachel Zilinskas (zilin006@umn.edu). If you have any feedback or ideas for future talks, please let us know!

The website will be updated as the year progresses.

Please note that the Fall seminars will be held in a hybrid format every other Tuesday at noon with options to attend either in person in Mayo D-199 or on Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed out before each seminar.
