A paper authored by young researchers of Biostatnet entitled Young biostatisticians in Spain: career or race? has been published on the October 2013 issue of the Bulletin of Statistics and Operations Research. Altea Lorenzo-Arribas et al. discuss new opportunities and challenges for the integration of young professionals in the Biostatistics area in Spain (e.g., multidisciplinary training, collaborations with other scientists and strategic partnerships in research). This article directly relates to a roundtable celebrated in January 2013 in the framework of the 2nd General Meeting of the Network. This article intends to provide the perspective of young biostatisticians on what many experienced colleagues have been discussing for years (i.e., interdisciplinary environment, training, opportunities abroad and development of new concepts).
