Our September speaker, Borko D. Jovanovic, PhD is a member of the Biostatistics Collaboration Center of the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute at Northwestern University. He also serves on the Clinical Protocol Scientific Review Monitoring Committee of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center and is the Director of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics for the Special Program in Research Excellence in Prostate Cancer.
A full scale scientific circle of reasoning in the domain of prostate cancer metastasis will be presented: from population to cells to animals to humans back to population. Dr. Jovanovic will look, by this example, into what part statistic plays (or does not play) in such 'translational' research, what may be new and what may be old. He will present his own ideas of what may be 'translational' in statistics as well as discuss some of the ideas presented in chapters of the book Translational Medicine: Strategies and Statistical Methods (CRC Press 2009 edited by Dennis Cosmatos & Shein-Chung Chow).
