2022 Fostering Diversity/2023 Junior Researchers Sponsors

The Fostering Diversity in Biostatistics Workshop has been held at the annual ENAR Spring Meeting since 1999. This day-long workshop aims to increase the number of quantitatively skilled young scholars from under-represented minority groups enrolling in advanced degree programs in Biostatistics, so as to promote their participation in and contributions to our field. The next workshop is planned for the 2022 ENAR Spring Meeting in Houston, Texas.

The Workshop for Junior Biostatisticians in Health Research has been a highly successful endeavor since 2001. This workshop, which is offered every other year, has offered opportunities to junior researchers to interact with prominent senior researchers and to become familiar with the grant application and review processes. Many researchers who have attended the workshop in the past are now flourishing mid-level and senior-level investigators. The next workshop is planned for the 2023 ENAR Spring Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee.

ENAR would like to thank our current sponsors.

Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics
The Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University was founded on the principle of health as a human right and the recognition of the importance of social justice as a means to achieve health for all.

Dornsife ranks as the #1 school of public health in Philadelphia and in the top 15% in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report's 2021 rankings of the nation’s best graduate schools. The school's academic programs are fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).

The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics applies, develops, and teaches the skills needed to understand the determinants of disease and improve health. We teach students the descriptive and analytic approaches (epidemiology) needed to investigate the complex causes of major public health problems and to develop effective strategies to prevent them. The biostatistics program centers on the development and application of theory and methods in the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data used in public health and other biomedical sciences.

GSK is a science-led global healthcare company that researches, develops and manufactures innovative medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products. Our goal is to be one of the world’s most innovative, best performing and trusted healthcare companies. Our biostatisticians, programmers and data scientists are transforming R&D decision-making from expert gut feel to one anchored in quantitative thinking and statistical analysis, thus enabling scientists to make data-driven choices, maximizing success and delivering more value to our patients.
