Mini-symposium in medical statistics

The RSS South West Local group held a mini-symposium in medical statistics today at the University of Plymouth.

The first speaker, Dr Gavin Koh, a tropical medicine physician and Global Health Clinical Development Director at GSK, offered an interactive seminar on discussing practical issues in medical statistics when designing a clinical trial.

The second speaker was Samuel Mahoney, a former student of BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Plymouth and is now a SAS programmer at Covance. Samuel talked about his enthusiasm about medical statistics and his recent paper on the association between dietary intake and BMI in early years.

This event was organized by Dr. Yinghui Wei, the secretary of the local group.
