We are happy to announce the workshop “Recent advances in joint models for cancer and the new statistical challenge of immunotherapy clinical studies” we are organizing in Bordeaux (ISPED Institute), France, from January 24 to January 25 th, 2019.
Applications for this free-workshop are now open (link below).
We would be grateful if you could disseminate this announcement as widely as possible among your collaborators and colleagues.
Emerging data collection in cancer research introduce complexities which are not necessarily covered by existing methods and software, and require further statistical methodological developments. A particular example is the need for joint modelling of combined repeated measurements and event-time data. Considerable recent interest has focused on so-called joint models and how to best merge information from the repeated measurements and event history data. Participants of this workshop will learn about the latest methodology for joint survival and longitudinal data analysis in clinical research.
But also, in oncology, the clinical development of new drugs is increasingly challenging. In this evolving field of research we are living a therapeutic revolution, and the advances of recent years lead us to address multiple new issues. Immune modulators are one of the most important classes of new anticancer therapeutics. However methodological or statistical issues and challenges with immunotherapies are still present and there is still far to go.
This workshop will bring together applied statisticians, epidemiologists and clinicians to offer insight into the joint modeling structure and to discuss how to increase our understanding of immunotherapies in cancer. This workshop will cover in depth the set of
recent methodological approaches needed for this emerging interdisciplinary topic.
The workshop will combine overview talks with topical
talks on recent research developments. There will be only invited sessions but a poster session will be organized during the
workshop so that each participant can have the possibility to present
Applications mandatory but free of charge:
Hope to see you there,
