    This session is sponsored by the journal Statistics in Biosciences (https://www.springer.com/journal/12561). The speakers will showcase their recent statistical developments motivated by real world challenges from biomedical sciences. Specifically, the talks will be on statistical methods for disease risk prediction from population genetic information, method selection for testing conditional independence of failure and truncation times, estimating center effects by survival probability, and dynamic survival models for time-dependent exposures. All the speakers have confirmed their intention to attend the conference. Listed below are the names of the speakers and talk titles.
