Description:
The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health named John J. Crowley, PhD as the recipient of the 2013 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science. Dr. Crowley is President and CEO of Cancer Research and Biostatistics (CRAB). He will deliver a lecture on May 24 at Harvard University. This annual award, supported by colleagues, friends and family, was established to honor Dr. Marvin Zelen's long and distinguished career as a statistician and his major role in shaping the field of biostatistics. The award recognizes an individual in government, industry, or academia, who by virtue of his/her outstanding leadership has greatly impacted the theory and practice of statistical science. While individual accomplishments are considered, the most distinguishing criterion is the awardees contribution to the creation of an environment in which statistical science and its applications have flourished. The award recipient will deliver a public lecture on statistical science at the Harvard School of Public Health and will be presented with a citation and an honorarium. Nominations for next year's award, to be given in May 2014, are welcome and should be sent by November 15, 2013 to vsb22140@yahoo.com
