We are pleased to announce a two-day workshop on Statistical Issues in
Drug Development led by Professor Stephen Senn, on 23rd and 24th
February 2011 at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The annual
biostatistics workshop is organised by the Statistical Consulting Centre
at the Department of Statistics, Faculty of Science.
Stephen Senn is Professor of Statistics at the University of Glasgow. He
worked for many years in the Swiss pharmaceutical industry and consults
regularly in Europe and America. He is the winner of the George C
Challis award for biostatistics of the University of Florida (2001) and
the PSI award for the most interesting speaker in 25 years of
conferences (2002). This course will be based on his book "Statistical
Issues in Drug Development" (Wiley, 1997, 2007). The emphasis will be on
philosophy rather than on algebra or technical details. The workshop is
particularly suitable for life scientists who wish to deepen their
appreciation of important statistical concepts and issues. It is also
suitable for statisticians who wish to obtain a concise overview of
controversies they may encounter!
For more details on the programme and registration, please visit the
workshop website: http://www.stat.auckland.ac.nz/sidd2011/. Note that
the early-bird registration ends on Friday, 7th January 2011.
