Call for Nominations: 2012 Lagakos Distinguished Alumni Award

created 05  Apr  2012

The Lagakos Distinguished Alumni Award has been established in memory of Dr. Stephen Lagakos, a faculty member and former chair of the Department of Biostatistics who passed away in a tragic automobile accident in 2009.

Professor Lagakos was a leader in the Department, the School of Public Health, and more broadly, in the international community of quantitative biomedical researchers. Steve's qualities of commitment, passion, intellectual brilliance, and personal generosity had a direct personal impact on our lives; and his contributions to biostatistics and to AIDS research were fundamental.

This award serves to honor Steve's distinguished career, and to recognize Department alumni whose research in statistical theory and application, leadership in biomedical research, and commitment to teaching have had a major impact on the theory and practice of statistical science.

The award recipient will be invited to HSPH to deliver a lecture on their career and life beyond the Department. The inaugural award will be presented in conjunction with the Harvard School of Public Health's kickoff of the 2012 Alumni Weekend. The lecture will be given at 4:00 PM on Friday, September 28, 2012.


Nominations for the award are welcome and should be sent to the following address or made by e-mail to Shaina Andelman:

The Lagakos Alumni Award Committee
c/o Shaina Andelman

Harvard School of Public Health
655 Huntington Avenue, Bldg 2, 4th Floor
