Interested in Machine Learning & Data Mining (in Python)? 
On November 8th, we will be having a postdoctoral researcher coming in to speak about his work and some projects he’s completed. Dr. Kuusisto completed his Computer Science PhD in Machine Learning in 2015 at UW-Madison, and works in the Regenerative Biology lab at the Morgridge Institute to build models from genetic expression data that can predict when compounds are toxic to developing neurological tissues.

The Graduate Program in Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University is seeking quantitatively oriented undergraduates (e.g., majors in statistics, mathematics, computer science, or quantitative sciences) who have an interest in pursuing a graduate degree in Biostatistics or Data Science. Our program has an emphasis on biomedical applications, statistical theory, and computational methods as well as a strong emphasis on traditional data science topics such as machine learning and computational algorithms. I have attached a copy of our program brochure. Please consider posting the brochure for students to see and forwarding on an electronic copy of this email to your students.

If you would like hard copies of our brochure, please contact our program manager, Amanda Harding at with your mailing address, and she would be happy to send them to you.
