Special Interest Groups

Our special interest groups (SIGs) are a forum for members to discuss topics of mutual interest, keep updated on developments in a particular area of industry, to organise events on their specialist field and/or to collaborate on developing the science of that field. Our current SIGs cover biomarkers, epidemiology and drug safety, health technology assessment and modelling and simulation. We also have a working party looking at the statistical implications of greater clinical trial data sharing and a group of volunteers providing a statistical briefing service on health stories in the lay media.

For further information on any of the SIGs, take a look at their pages on the website using the menu above and contact the chairs.

  • Statistics Fundamentals for Clinical Trials for Non-Statisticians (or ‘How to speak stats in a day!’) - Dates: 14 – 14 Nov, 2017

    This is a 1-day course, aimed to introduce statistics to people who work on Clinical Trials, but who are not Statisticians. No previous knowledge of Statistics is assumed as we start right at the beginning with the basics. Many practical examples are given and the emphasis is on application and understanding rather than the equations and the technical background.
  • PSI One Day Meeting: Estimands – Examples for Statisticians! - Dates: 27 – 27 Sep, 2017

    The PSI Scientific Committee have put together this one day meeting to provide Statisticians with real world examples of how Estimands have been defined. Presenters will give their insight into discussions with colleagues, working groups and regulators and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask your questions on defining an Estimand.
