About 200 delegates, postgraduates and undergraduate students from various colleges across Chennai attended this program. The motto of conducting this one day programme was to give an insight on the basic biostatistics and research methodology, to inspire young minds for research. Biostatistics was presented at its simplistic best and unraveled many doubts and questions. We were immensely pleased by the tremendous response and reverberating success of the programme.
