The Applied Biostatistics Association

TABA is an informal association of applied biostatisticians and pharmaceutical researchers that has been organizing seminars in the Toronto area for over 25 years (formerly known as the Toronto Area Biostatistics Association). TABA’s goal is to provide an opportunity for professional development, as well as a venue where practicing statisticians can meet, share ideas, and learn from one another. We also welcome students.

Seminars are usually held in the early evening (6pm) and each seminar is followed by an informal meal which provides an opportunity for networking. The seminars are free, the meal costs a nominal amount. See here for a list of seminars.
