Missing Data in Clinical Trials Forum – The Missing Data in Clinical Trials Forum
United States

Missing Data in Clinical Trials Forum – The Missing Data in Clinical Trials Forum

March 16-17, 2015 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A successful clinical trial depends on accurate, high-quality data. However, missing data can significantly compromise all areas of the research, from key inferences made to regulatory compliance. Regulatory bodies have provided relatively little guidance on how to deal with the setbacks caused by missing data. Currently, many studies compensate by means of statistical analysis techniques. While this is a legitimate practice, it is usually not a comprehensive solution, and needs to be used in conjunction with other techniques.

The Missing Data in Clinical Trials Forum is the leading event to help you learn the most cutting-edge strategies to mitigate the effects of missing data in your clinical trials. The mission of this event is to explore the best practices and recent developments not only in adjusting data sets with missing data, but minimizing instances of missing data points in the first place, an area of great interest as the current trend of increasing clinical trial length and complexity continues.

Top Five Reasons to Attend

1. Understand the current state of missing data mitigation and how it impacts life science companies

2. Learn how to eliminate missing data before it happens through better trial design

3. Discover proven insights to increase patient recruitment and retention

4. Master how to monitor and reduce missing data during the conduct of your clinical trials

5. Examine the current regulatory landscape and anticipate future requirements

Next Generation Sequencing: Towards Single Cell Analysis

Next Generation Sequencing: Towards Single Cell Analysis

10th & 11th March 2015 INGM (Instituto Nazionale Genetica Molecolare) Milan, Italy

This Next Generation Sequencing conference highlights the developments of using NGS in the usual application areas such as Epigenetics, Transcriptomics, Exome/Genome Analysis etc whilst moving from analysis of tissues and biofluids towards single cells and limiting amounts of RNA and DNA.

Next Generation Sequencing is a very powerful genomic tool that is opening up new possibilities when it comes to tackling human health issues.  Whether it is the effect of the environment on the DNA (Epigenetics) or the expression of individual genes in single cells (single cell transcriptomics) or the meaning and significance of data from NGS Panels, Exomes or Genomes, researchers are driving the applicability of NGS to its limits.

Biotexcel is partnering with leading genomics institutes in Europe to help push the boundaries by facilitating dialogue and dissemination of knowledge in a way that enables researchers to come together, network and initiate the next generation of collaborations using NGS.

In line with this philosophy Biotexcel is thrilled to announce our partnership with Dr Sergio Abrignani CSO of the National Institute of Molecular Genetics in Italy to hold NGS 2015 Milan: Towards Single Cell Genomic Analysis. NGS Milan 2015 is a gathering not to be missed; it is our virtual R&D ideas hub for those who want to take the limits of NGS further.

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015
United Kingdom

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015

18th February 2015 London, United Kingdom

Interest in qualitative approaches among academic communities concerned with health and illness is evidenced by the rise of mixed methods studies, the proliferation of qualitative health research journals and conferences, and the marked presence of qualitative researchers in academic centres of health research. This reflects the recognition and endorsement of its contribution to research on health, illness and care. However, its inclusion is not straightforward and there can be tensions between the conceptual and methodological approaches of qualitative research and those of a quantitative paradigm generally more familiar to health practitioners, policymakers and often other researchers. These tensions bring to the fore questions to be explored around the applicability, value, contribution, legitimacy and limitations of qualitative inquiry within the prevailing research culture. Ultimately it raises important questions about how qualitative inquiry can enrich interdisciplinary collaborations.

Aim of symposium

Building on our 2013 qualitative health research meeting, we aim in this 2015 symposium to generate a more focused and constructive commentary on the contributions that qualitative inquiry can make to understandings of health, illness and care.

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

March 30 – March 31, 2015 Philosophy Department, Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz, Germany

It is now almost 25 years since the U.S. Congress authorized the then president, George Bush sr., to proclaim the decade beginning January 1, 1990 as the Decade of the Brain. This proclamation stimulated a number of initiatives that substantially benefitted neuroscience research in the following years. Alongside this rise of neuroscience and the corresponding increase of public awareness, many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have shifted towards more brain based and evolutionary informed approaches. New research fields such as Neuroethics, Neuroeconomics, Cognitive Cultural Studies, Neuroaesthetics or even Neurotheology have gained a following. In addition to surveying the mutual interactions between the cognitive neurosciences and the social sciences and humanities, this interdisciplinary conference investigates the methodological and conceptual prospects and perils of choosing a neuroscience approach to the social sciences and the humanities. The conference aims to shed light on a broad range of epistemological, historical and sociological questions about the purported neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities including (but not limited to):

• How and why have brain based approaches to the social sciences and humanities developed?

• What exactly distinguishes cognitive and brain based approaches from their traditional counterparts?

• How are brain-based sub-disciplines of the traditional humanities institutionalized?

• How does research policy contribute to the development of a neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities?

• Are there common motives for turning to cognitive neuroscience approaches in the different disciplines of social sciences and humanities? If so, which?

• Are there any historical examples of a turn to brain based approaches in the social sciences and the humanities?

• If so, what could be learned from this history for practicing social sciences and humanities today?

• What, if anything, can the humanities and the social sciences learn from the neurosciences?

• What, if anything, can the neurosciences learn from the social sciences and the humanities?

• How does neuroscience change the social sciences and the humanities?

• How do the humanities and the social sciences change neuroscience?
