Amazing Ada: Using Maths and Statistics to bring Innovative Treatments to Patients
14 October 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm£3
How can we bring new medicines to patients as quickly as possible?
How can we ensure we are asking and answering the right questions?
How can we design clinical trials efficiently?
(One of) the answers is statistics!
This talk will describe how novel statistical methods can be used to develop medicines, and help to make decisions (about the efficacy and safety of drugs) as efficiently as possible. We’ll walk through the drug development process and intuitively explore some of the ways statistics is being used to answer these questions.
Join us for this Amazing Ada talk by Nicola Voyle from Roche, just one in a series of talks we are putting on to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day (8 October) and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
