Computational Medicine and Human Genetics at UCLA, with support from NIH, held the third Lange Symposium on Feb 3, 2023. The topic for this year’s symposium was Computational Statistics. This annual event celebrates the impact of Dr. Lange’s research, mentorship, and teaching over the course of an illustrious career spanning more than four decades. It features scientific talks by some of Dr. Lange’s esteemed colleagues and former trainees. 

The speakers this year included Genevera Allen (Rice University), David Hunter (Penn State), Oscar Padilla Madrid (UCLA), Marc Suchard (UCLA), Joong-Ho (Johann) Won (Seoul National University), and Jason Xu (Duke University). UCLA Professors Eric Sobel, Jeanette Papp, and Hua Zhou organized the event, along with Professor Eric Chi at Rice University. About 60 students, researchers, and faculty participated, including some from Morehouse School of Medicine, University of Alabama, the U.S. Military Academy, Claremont Graduate University, and the University of Michigan.

Videos of the talks are now available on the CompMed YouTube channel.

The next Lange Symposium will be held in early 2024. Check the Lange Symposium website for details. Read about the Ken Lange Symposium Endowment and make a gift online.
