Nominations Sought for the Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science

created 01  Nov  2008

The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health named Norman Breslow as the recipient of the 2008 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science. Dr. Breslow, Professor, Department of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, University of Washington, delivered a lecture entitled "The Case-Control Study: Origins, Modern Conception and Newly Available Methods of Analysis" on May 30 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/June 2009, should be sent to the:

Marvin Zelen Leadership Award Committee
Department of Biostatistics
Harvard School of Public Health
655 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

Nominations should include a letter describing the contributions of the candidate, specifically highlighting the criteria for the award, and a curriculum vitae. Supporting letters and materials would be extremely helpful to the committee.

All nominations must be received by December 15, 2008.
