The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) has named Christl A. Donnelly of the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London, the recipient of its 2005 Distinguished Alum Award. Donnelly will deliver a lecture June 1 at Harvard.
Each year, the Distinguished Alum Award is given to an individual in government, industry, or academia who has made an impact on the theory and practice of statistical science. The overall career of the individual is considered with an emphasis on how the nominee has used his or her experience to bring out “the best in life with research and academics.” Award recipients are invited to deliver a lecture on their career and life beyond HSPH, for the primary benefit of the department’s students. The recipient is also presented with a plaque.
Nominations for the 2006 award may be sent to the Distinguished Award Committee, Department of Biostatistics, HSPH, 655 Huntington Ave., Boston, MA 02115. Nominations should include a letter describing the contributions of the candidate, specifically highlighting the criteria for the award, and curriculum vitae. Supporting letters and materials are welcome but not required.
The deadline for submissions is Jan. 15, 2006.
