JANICE POGUE was an exceptional statistician who created the statistical group at the Population Health Research Institute where she worked for 22 years, and as a faculty member at McMaster University’s then named Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Janice was a role model for research staff, faculty colleagues and students, and in many other organizations throughout the world. Her untimely death in 2016 was a major loss for PHRI, McMaster University, and the international biostatistics / clinical trials research community. Recognizing the importance of her contributions to the field, and to establish a lasting memorial in her name, PHRI and McMaster launched an annual Janice Pogue Lecture to continue the many important dialogues that Janice began and to honour her dedication to clinical research and her generosity to her colleagues.
