• “Apply Computer Science to Accelerate Precision Medicine”

    Date: 14-15 November 2018

    Location: Friibergh’s Mansion, Öresundsbro, Sweden – see website

    We are delighted to be arranging this two-day workshop focused on data science and biostatistics as applied to multi-omics biomarker research aimed at facilitating precision medicine. The symposium will cover aspects such as data management, normalization methods, study considerations, analysis and modeling. The aim is to gather biostatisticians and researchers with great interest in the data analysis itself, and who want to share their experiences and further develop their own knowledge. The deadline for registration was Friday September 28, 2018 (registration is now closed).
