Venue: Crowne Plaza London - Heathrow, UB7 9NA, UK
This practical training course will give a deep dive into performing Bayesian analyses in R and SAS. It is aimed at statisticians who need to be able to conduct Bayesian analyses as part of their day to day work. By the end of the course participants will be able to conduct their own analyses.
The course will begin with an introduction into Bayesian general principles including prior distribution, likelihood, posterior distribution, predictive distribution and Bayesian vs frequentist inference
The course will then progress into learning how to implement Bayesian analyses in R: Stan and SAS: PROC MCMC
Examples of using Bayesian analyses in clinical trials will be discussed
This course will have a hands-on approach so participants must bring a laptop with R (latest version if possible), R studio and SAS installed (if available). The R Stan package should also be installed.

The ITIT course will take 25 delegates new to the industry on a complete drug development experience from discovery to marketing. They will visit 6 companies from October 2020 to July 2021 to learn about 6 topics from experts in their field. The ITIT course will have 3 sessions in continental Europe and 3 - 4 sessions in the UK. It promises to be a truly memorable course.
This course is aimed at Statisticians and Programmers experienced in SAS, but little or no experience with R.
An Introduction to R studio and the R language, statistical graphics, programming statistical models, simulations and more…
PSI Toxicology SIG workshop – 24th and 25th November 2020
The Toxicology SIG provides a forum for statisticians working in regulatory/investigative toxicology, as well as most other pre-clinical areas, to discuss issues and interact with one another.
This 1.5-day workshop will involve approximately 20 statisticians, focusing on discussions around “best practice” in the statistical analysis of various data types.
The afternoon of Day 1 will include a 4.5 hour Bayesian training course focused towards applications in toxicology/pre-clinical, provided by Prof. Dr. Katja Ickstadt and is included in the workshop fee.
The cost will be £270 including VAT per delegate, inclusive of food and one night’s accommodation (and the training course). The workshop is being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Heathrow.
The agenda and topics that will be discussed are yet to be finalised, but please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions. Full details will be circulated in the coming weeks.
