Emory Biostatisticians Receive Awards from the American Statistical Association

The American Statistical Association (ASA) has recognized biostatisticians from the department of biostatistics and bioinformatics at Emory University Rollins School of Public Health for their excellence in the field.

ASA Fellows are nominated by current members and are selected on the basis of their established reputations and contributions to statistics. Dr. Guo is the ninth member of the current Emory biostatistics and bioinformatics faculty in 19 years to be named a Fellow of the ASA.

“Every year, fewer than one-third of 1 percent of the ASA’s total membership can be named as fellows. It’s quite a statement to Ying and Dionne’s various successes that they be selected,” says Dr. Lance Waller, professor and chair of the department of biostatistics and bioinformatics.  

The ASA Mentoring Award is given annually to a member who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership in developing the careers of statistics students, statisticians, or statistical researchers early in their careers.
