Our History

The IBS Tanzanian Region was established in October 26, 2017. The idea to establish the Region was realized and spearhead by Tanzanians (with assistance from Prof. Jim Todd) who attended 2017 International Biometric Society (IBS) Sub Sahara African Network (SUSAN) Conference, which was held in Lilongwe, Malawi from 22nd to 25th August 2017.

The Tanzanian Region supports the Sub-Sahara African Network, or SUSAN, which is a network of national biometric groups of the Sub-Saharan Africa countries who promote the advancement of life sciences through development, application and dissemination of effective mathematical and statistical methods to its members and collaborating partners. This includes applications in agriculture, medical and health research, infectious diseases, environment and ecology, climate, and other applied sciences such as the areas of statistical genetics and bioinformatics.
