Early Career Biostatisticians’ Day

The Early Career Biostatisticians’ Day of the 42nd annual conference of the ISCB will be held on Thursday 22 July 2021. We welcome all ISCB conference delegates to attend. The aim of the day is to stimulate discussion on improving research abilities and exchanging personal experiences of biostatistical research.

Call for abstracts for the Early Career Biostatisticians’ day

All students and early career biostatisticians, (i.e. within 10 years of completing biostatistics training) are invited to submit an abstract for an oral presentation at the ISCB Early Career Biostatisticians day on Thursday 22 July 2021. We are seeking presentations related to student, academic, research and professional life that are outside the scope of the main conference. This year we will have a special focus on the ethical challenges presented to biostatisticians and invite submissions relating to specific examples of ethical dilemmas in student and professional life. However, we welcome submissions on a range of themes such as choice of workplace, professional advancement, navigating professional relationships, and work-life balance.

Invited speakers

Experienced biostatisticians will share the lessons that they have learnt in a range of professional and academic settings.
Anne-Laure Boulesteix - A replication crisis in methodological statistical research?
Mavuto Mukaka - Studying and working in developing nations

Networking event

A networking event for students and early career biostatisticians will be held on Sunday 18 July 2021. Our aim is to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for career-young biostatisticians at the annual ISCB conference. The event will facilitate introductions between attendees in a relaxed and informal setting. This year, we will explore the theme of biostatistics as sentinels for ethical conduct of research to encourage discussion.
