B&B Section Webinar:  COVID-19: Unexpected Opportunities and Lessons for Australia's Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiological Community

Several Australian scientists were unexpectedly shot to prominence during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Biostatistical concepts and models were discussed on breakfast television and news radio, presenting a significant communication challenge. At the same time, a number of our community actively and publiclycritiqued high-profile studies of COVID-19, generating substantial (and at times very personal) criticism. 

In this lunchtime webinar we will hear from Adrian Esterman and Gideon Meyerowitz-Katz about their whirlwind journeys from 'quiet' academia to high-profile sci-comm personality, with a focus on the lessons biostatisticians and bioinformaticians can take from these experiences. Please join us!

Presenters:

Prof Adrian Esterman
