July 2014

Congratulations to two SPHIS Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatstics faculty members that have been named fellows of the American Statistical Association (ASA).

Karunarathna “K.B.” Kulasekera, PhD, joined the department in July 2012 as chair and professor. Shesh N. Rai, PhD, is a professor of bioinformatics and biostatistics, and director of the Biostatistics Shared Facility at the UofL James Graham Brown Cancer Center.

The designation of fellow is limited to no more than one-third of one percent of the ASA’s total membership. The annual award recognizes ASA members of established reputation who have made outstanding professional contributions and provided leadership in the field of statistical science.

Kulasekera and Rai will be honored at the Joint Statistical Meeting in August 2012.
