Biostat 245 - UCLA / Fall 2015


  • Instructor: Donatello Telesca
  • Students Seminar: M 3:00-4:50 PH 51-279
  • Seminar Lecture: W 3:30 - 4:30 DENT 13041 (Refreshments in the Biostat Library at 3:00)

This course serves two main purposes. The main idea is to get you comfortable speaking about technical topics in a Q&A setting. A second function of Monday's student seminar is to provide preliminary preparation for the topics covered in research lectures offered later in the week.

All students will be expected to give a 15 min presentation on a research manuscript.  You may  volunteer to give a presentation on you own research, in case you are defending or giving your oral exam in the near future.
