Biostatistics Seminars

The Division of Biostatistics seminar series includes research-focused talks by visiting faculty from a wide range of institutions, and faculty from the University of Minnesota. All seminars are free and open to the public.

Biostatistics students organize the Student Seminar Series, where students present and discuss their work in progress.
