LBSP Biostats Network

Thursday, May 17, 2018
15.00 - 18.00
Grand Café De Stal
Darwinweg 1, 2333 CR Leiden

The theme for this session will be “Decision making and personalized medicine”. For a drug developer a decision can be to stop or continue development, which dose to select or which patient subgroup to target. For an individual a decision on treatment choice has to be made.

We have two speakers for this session and welcome more on any topic related to decision making and/or personalized medicine.

Speakers will have 20-30 minutes to present followed by roughly 10 minutes of Q&A at the end of their presentation.  Please consider volunteering to present and let the committee know by 2 May latest.
We look forward to hearing from you and to meeting again soon!
