Young Biometrician Award for 2015
We are delighted to announce that the BIR-FMT 2015 Young Biometrician Award has been won by David Robertson of the MRC Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge, for his paper “Correcting for bias in the selection and validation of informative diagnostic tests” published in Statistics in Medicine (2015, Vol 34, pages 1417-1437). The judges commented that “The paper provides an accessible and valuable approach to an important biostatistical problem. The development shows an impressive grasp of the practicalities of the issues involved, as well as a mastery of highly appropriate methodological techniques which, although well-established, are seldom seen nowadays.” The award includes a diploma and a prize of £1000 and will be presented at a BIR meeting in the autumn (details will appear on the BIR website in due course).
