Over 6,000 runners were unable to finish the race after this horrific incident. We were approached by the marathon's organizers, the Boston Athletic Association (BAA), and asked to recommend a procedure for projecting finish times for the runners who could not complete the race. With assistance from the BAA... Read more about Biostats: Francesca Dominici & Matthew Cefalu
