Triggered by a challenging biological problem, Hugo Lavenant, Assistant Professor at Department of Decision Sciences and BIDSA Affiliate, has developed innovative mathematical models for stem cell differentiation.

Igor Pruenster President of International Society for Bayesian Analysis

Founded in 1992, ISBA approaches its 30th anniversary. Over these years, it has promoted the development and application of Bayesian statistics. This approach to modeling and prediction is based on the celebrated theorem by Thomas Bayes, where available knowledge about the parameters in a probabilistic model is updated with the information contained in the data.
