COPSS Snedecor Award – JSM 2009

Congratulations to Dr. Marie Davidian for receiving the COPSS Snedecor Award at JSM 2009 meetings in Washington, DC. She received this ‘for fundamental contributions to the theory and methodology of longitudinal data, especially nonlinear mixed effects models; for significant contributions to the analysis of clinical trials and observational studies; and for leadership as president of ENAR, as editor and as a member of the International Biometrics Society council.’ This award, established in 1976, honors an individual who was instrumental in the development of statistical theory in biometry. The award is for a noteworthy publication in biometry within three years of the data of the award. Starting in 1991 this award is given every other year, in odd years, and consists of a plaque and a cash award.”
