DeMets Lecture Series

2020 DeMets Lectures Cancelled

Given the ongoing pandemic and our desire to hold these lectures in person to provide the best possible experience for those who attend, we are cancelling this year’s DeMets Lecture Series.  Thank you for understanding and we look forward to welcoming you in person to the 2021 DeMets Lectures.

The David L. DeMets Lectures in Health and Quantitative Investigation are an pair of lectures held on a Thursday and Friday each November.

These lectures acknowledge Dr. DeMets’ research accomplishments in forwarding the design, monitoring, analysis, and presentation of clinical trials.

The first lecture is 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 is a world-class research talk in biostatistics or biomedical informatics.

The lecturer chosen each year exemplifies the “David DeMets Model of Biomedical Research” with rigorous development and application of quantitative methodological principles, married with deep engagement in an area of biomedical investigation.
