The Careers and Academic Liaison Committee (CALC) will be hosting their fourth Maths Meets Medicine event this year at the University of Reading. The event provides the opportunity for KS4 students to come and learn about how the mathematical discipline of statistics plays a crucial role in the development of new medicines. The day will involve three interactive and fun statistics-based workshops, which aim to complement and extend the statistical concepts covered in the KS4 and KS5 curriculums, followed by a campus tour of the university. We hope that this event will raise awareness of some of the interesting career opportunities that are available using mathematics and statistics and inspire students to think beyond more traditional applications of mathematics such as finance and teaching.
If your school is interested in sending students to this event, please contact us at Careers@psiweb.org
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: Repeated Measured and Mixed Models
A PSI Training Course covering the statistical methods for repeated measures and other clustered data. Course will cover: Conditional models for continuous hierarchical data, Conditional models for continuous longitudinal data, Marginal models (GEE) for continuous longitudinal data & Discrete data.
PSI Training Course: R for Clinical Trial Statisticians
R is quickly gaining popularity within the pharmaceutical industry due to it being a very powerful object-orientated language, and is able to produce analyses and high quality graphics. This will be a hands-on interactive course and will utilise the RStudio Cloud development environment.
