In recent years, the number of careers available to biostatisticians (as well as statisticians and data scientists) have drastically increased. One new and exciting area of expansion is careers in the tech industry. Flatiron Health is a healthcare tech company that is using big data to improve cancer treatment and accelerate cancer research. During the speed session and poster, I will detail the typical day in the life of a biostatistician working on the quantitative sciences team at Flatiron Health. I will also discuss some of the critical cancer research questions the quantitative science team at Flatiron addresses as well as some of the career opportunities available to statisticians, biostatisticians and data scientists at this fast growing company.
