Janice Pogue was an exceptional statistician who created the statistical group at the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) where she worked for 22 years, and as a faculty member in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CE&B). She was highly respected and admired by colleagues and much loved by graduate students. Janice was a role model for research staff, faculty colleagues and students in CE&B, the PHRI, and in many other organizations throughout the world. Her untimely death in 2016 was a major loss for the PHRI, McMaster University, and the international biostatistics / clinical trials research community. Recognizing the importance of her contributions to the field, and to establish a lasting memorial in her name, PHRI and CE&B are launching an annual Janice Pogue Lecture to continue the many important dialogues that Janice began and to honour her dedication to clinical research and her generosity to her colleagues.
