The annual Janice Pogue Lectureship in Biostatistics was launched in 2017 to honour the memory of Janice Pogue, 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.
