The Sholom Wacholder Lectureship in Quantitative Health Sciences was established in 2017 to honor our colleague, friend, and senior investigator in the Biostatistics Branch of DCEG, Dr. Sholom Wacholder, who died in 2015, and to preserve his legacy of unique, multidisciplinary and critical thinking throughout DCEG.

Once per year, the Division invites a prominent scientist who works at the intersection of quantitative reasoning and science to give the Wacholder Lecture and to visit with DCEG researchers. In the spirit of Dr. Wacholder, the lecture is designed to be interactive and interdisciplinary.

The inaugural lecture will be given by Dr. Robert Burk of Albert Einstein College of Medicine., close friend and colleague of Dr. Wacholder.
