Annual Armitage Workshops and Lecture
"The U.K. Medical Research Council (MRC) Biostatistics Unit, based in Cambridge, established the Armitage Lectureship in the autumn of 2003. This is an annual event during which an eminent medical statistician visits for a week and works with members of the Unit. The highlight is the delivery of the Armitage Lecture, named to honour the immense contributions of Professor Peter Armitage to our discipline. Peter Armitage's work is recognized throughout the world as achieving a successful balance between methodological rigour and applied commonsense, to which we all might aspire."
