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).
Throughout our lives we rely on this ecosystem within us to protect us from infection, to provide nutrients, and to maintain equilibrium in some organs. In order to study these microbes, we can use DNA sequencing approaches to classify the species present or to identify metabolic pathways.
The applications of microbiome research are widely touted: for personalised medicine, “microbiome hacking”, forensics, etc. However, as with any fast-growing field there are pitfalls that can impact future research as well as its commercial and clinical applications.
Join us for this Amazing Ada talk by Susannah Salter, a microbiologist.

Get the kids learning about chemistry in a fun and hands-on way, without messing up your kitchen!
Make rainbows with diffusion, investigate the properties of oil and water and find out what happens when a solid and liquid react together to form a gas. There’ll be colours, smells and balloons to help explore these chemistry concepts.
Dr Caroline Davies will be on hand to show you how to do some mind-blowing experiments.
These sessions are aimed at 5-11 year olds. It will last half an hour and all children need to be supervised by an adult (Adults come for free).
