PSI Webinar(s): Causal inference in Clinical Trials
Over the course of two sessions, a panel of 8 esteemed speakers will give an introduction to the topic, followed by a presentation of case studies & interactive panel discussion.
PSI Careers Lunch & Learn: Is it AI? Can you spot the fake?
In a world buzzing with artificial intelligence, can you distinguish between what's AI-generated and what's not? The session promises to showcase machine-generated content, challenging your perceptions, and luring you into the fascinating world of AI technology.
PSI VisSIG Wonderful Wednesday Webinar Series (2023)
Our monthly webinar explores examples of innovative data visualisations relevant to our day to day work. Each month a new dataset is provided from a clinical trial or other relevant example, and participants are invited to submit a graphic that communicates interesting and relevant characteristics of the data.
PSI Training Course: R for Clinical Trial Statisticians
This course consists of 5 x 2 hour training sessions run over 5 weeks. For those who cannot attend the date and time provided, there will be a recording provided and a follow-up 1 hour Q and A session. Participation will provide access to extensive course materials in the form of a “bookdown” site. However, this is designed as a hands-on, interactive course. Both you and the trainers will work entirely within the RStudio Cloud development environment, which will remain accessible between virtual sessions in order to further explore and cement your understanding.
PSI Pre-Clinical SIG Workshop
The Pre-Clinical SIG Workshop returns for 2024, bringing you a two half-days event, starting with a course on pre-clinical design of experiments. We will also have speakers on topics such as statistics and genetic toxicology, the new and promising OMARS DOE and ANOVA-type.
PSI Mentoring 2024
Are you a member of PSI looking to further your career or help develop others - why not sign up to the PSI Mentoring scheme? You can expand your network, improve your leadership skills and learn from more senior colleagues in the industry.
Special Interest Groups
The Application and Implementation of Methodologies in Statistics (AIMS)
The Benefit-Risk SIG was set up at the start of 2012 to help support those involved in this fast evolving area.
The PSI / EFSPI Biomarkers Special Interest Group has been formed with the aim of developing knowledge and opinions within the statisticians about biomarker usage and the related statistical and study design techniques that are involved.
The CSM/QTL SIG is a joint collaboration including PSI, ASA BIOP & EFSPI providing a forum to discuss strategies and methodology with other interested parties in Centralised Statistical Monitoring and Quality Tolerance Limits
Bridging Data Science knowledge and expertise across various groups and functions within the pharmaceutical industry to increase collaboration, awareness, knowledge sharing and enhance drug development. We’ll encourage the development of new statistical and machine learning methods and approaches as well as in novel applications of the well-established methods.
Sharing experiences and challenges of external patient level data sharing with particular focus on data privacy and anonymization processes.
The Quantitative Decision-making Special Interest Group (QDM SIG) was formed in October 2017. It is a group of statisticians from industry and academia, with experience and interests in statistical methods for quantitative decision-making in drug development.
What is the state of the art regarding approaches to incorporate historical data into the formal design and analysis of clinical trials, Which statistical methods should we use to make historical and current data comparable, What are the regulatory requirements necessary for the acceptance of historical data in drug approval?
The purpose of the Healthcare Technology Assessment SIG is to provide statisticians working in the Pharmaceutical Industry engaged in Health Technology Assessments, and others in related fields of research...
Launch & Lifecycle
Providing a platform for statisticians from sponsors and CROs to working in the launch and lifecycle management (including traditional medical affairs area,
This SIG will connect the following two topics: general biostatistics Neuroscience community, and working groups on estimands & other topics in Neuroscience.
The draft addendum of the ICH E9 guideline on Statistical Principles for Clinical Trials was released in August 2017 and introduced an estimand framework. In February 2018, Evgeny Degtyarev from Novartis and Kaspar Rufibach from Roche started an informal working group to discuss how to implement the draft addendum in oncological clinical trials.
To provide a forum to discuss the statistical issues involved in Regulatory and Investigative Toxicology.
Our passion is to change the way randomisation is considered and performed in clinical trials.
The regulatory SIG co-ordinates regulatory activities across the European Pharmaceutical Statistical community and to engage with European Regulatory statisticians.
A special interest group to increase collaboration and enhance awareness of strategies and methodologies applied in the utilization of Real World Data in the pharmaceutical industry.
The SIG “Small populations” provides a forum for identifying and discussing statistical methodology related to clinical development of treatments in small populations, and for sharing experiences.
Subgroup analysis is routinely conducted in drug development, in various settings; one key aspect is the regulatory requirement to demonstrate consistency of treatment effect across a pre-defined set of subgroups (e.g., ICHE5, E9, E17).
Creating a professional platform for statisticians in the Pharmaceutical industry, Regulatory agencies and Public Health organizations working on the research and development of vaccines to understand how best to apply methodologies.
