David L. DeMets Lectures in Health and Quantitative Investigation

The David L. DeMets Lectures in Health and Quantitative Investigation are an annual pair of lectures to be held on a Thursday and Friday every November. These lectures acknowledge the accomplishments of Dr. DeMets's research in the design, monitoring, analysis, and presentation of clinical trials.

The first lecture will be a research/overview talk accessible to a general biomedical/public health audience. Ideally, it will highlight in one or more ways critical and impactful contributions from quantitative methodological areas (e.g., biostatistics and/or biomedical informatics) to discoveries in biomedicine, and/or advancement of human/public health.

The second lecture will be a world-class research talk in biostatistics or biomedical informatics.

The selected lecturer will be chosen to exemplify the "David DeMets Model of Biomedical Research": rigorous development and application of quantitative methodological principals, married with deep engagement in an area of biomedical investigation.
