      The Wonders of Biostatistics at 2012 Cambridge Science Festival

The MRC Biostatistics Unit <http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/index.html> 
will be presenting 'The Wonders of Biostatistics' to Cambridge Science 
Festival <http://www.cam.ac.uk/sciencefestival/> audiences who visit the 
Biology Zone at the New Museums Site.

'The Wonders of Biostatistics' will show you how key ideas in 
biostatistics are used to understand, and improve, the public health. 
Different activities allow visitors to apply these ideas for themselves 
in a series of challenges!

The activities will cover four different, complementary themes:

- How many ducks are there? (Capture-Recapture Studies: used in public 
health for counting hard-to-reach sub-populations) /
Activity organiser: Simon White 
<http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/People/SWhite.html>/

- Looking after your hands (Statistical Modelling of Arthritis) /
/Activity organisers: Brian Tom 
<http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/People/BTom.html> and Aidan O'Keeffe

- Piecing together the jigsaw puzzle in "meta-analysis"/
Activity organiser: Rebecca Turner 
<http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/People/RTurner.html>/

- How random are you? (Use of random numbers in statistics)/
/

/Activity Leader: Ruth Keogh 
<http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/People/RKeogh.html>

/

*/Come and explore with us how biostatistics can be used to improve 
health. Try our four different activities in which your creativity and 
thinking abilities will help you to solve the challenges we'll give you!/*

The Festival will have over 180 events showcasing the boundaries that 
are being broken in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
