  • Methods/Applications of Machine Learning
  • Innovative Methods to Analysing Safety Data
  • Bayesian Topics within Early or Late Phase
  • Advances in Pre-Clinical Development
  • Applications of Real World Data

If you are a career young statistician (approximately less than 5 years working in the pharmaceutical industry) then there will be a dedicated contributed session for you. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in presenting in a friendly environment and to network with peers at other companies.

Given the success of our 1 minute poster preview in 2017, anyone selected for a poster will be asked if they would like to give a 1 minute presentation on their poster to give people a brief insight into their work. This will form part of the final session on the Monday, leading into the poster session.  

In order to submit an abstract, please download a form which must be completed and sent to psi2018conference@mci-group.com

Successful applicants will be notified within three weeks following the deadline.

Finally, sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are already ongoing; thanks to those who have already signed up. We will be allocating the choice of exhibition space in the order exhibitors sign up. So get in early to secure the best space!

Should your company be interested please contact Alex Currie (alexander.8.currie@gsk.com) or Chris Watton on (psi@wattonhall.com).

We hope you will join us in building on the great success of this year’s event to make 2018 an even greater event.
