PHASTAR’s 2022 Life Science Summit

Following the success of PLSS 2021 which welcomed more than 700 attendees from over 25 different countries and 34 presentations across three different tracks, we are delighted to announce that PHASTAR’s Life Science Summit 2022 will be taking place on the 31st May and 1st June 2022.

Focusing on developing and delivering statistical and data science excellence with engaging discussions and presentations from industry experts and academic leaders, topics covered will include COVID-19, statistics in clinical trials, data science and its applications, as well as a dedicated stream showcasing “Rising Analytical Leaders”. As a free-to-attend completely virtual event, PHASTAR’s Life Science Summit provides a unique platform to communicate your work to a truly global audience.

PLSS 2022 will feature presentations that review existing methodology, consider emerging theoretical developments, and are interesting applications of statistics and data science in medical research, with a particular focus on the following themes:

  • Real world evidence
  • Decentralised trials
  • Synthetic control arms
  • Adaptive designs
  • Bayesian
  • Data visualisation
  • Learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic

PLSS 2021 hosted presentations from distinguished figures such as Professor Peter J Diggle (CHICAS, Lancaster University), Dr Heinz Schmidli (Novartis), Mark Briers (Lead Scientist of the NHS COVID19 App), Rosa LaMarca (AstraZeneca) and Eileen Hoffman (Takeda).

A number of these presentations can now be accessed in our Knowledge Center.

The Sally Hollis Memorial Lecture

The Sally Hollis Lecture was established in 2021 in memory of Professor Sally Hollis, a much-loved and highly respected member of the PHASTAR team. Sally was a highly talented leader whose contribution was recognized as outstanding by all who worked with her.

Each year a Sally Hollis Lecturer is chosen in recognition of outstanding contributions to the field of medical statistics. The Lecturer alternates each year between academia and industry to represent the substantial cross-discipline impact that Sally had.
