Who is this event intended for? Anybody keen to learn about the combining of sexes for statistical analysis in Toxicology, and the guideline recommendations pertaining to this topic. What is the benefit of attending? To gain an overview of regulatory guidelines and the application to both ECG Data and DART Data, whilst looking at the consideration of sex in Toxicology.
You can now register for this event. Registration will close at 12:00 on 30th November 2020.
This event is free of charge to both Members and Non Members of PSI.

The webinar will provide a general introduction to the topic of combining sexes for statistical analysis in Toxicology. It will also discuss guideline recommendations pertaining to this topic.
For electrocardiography and jacketed external telemetry data, it will discuss scientific preferences, historical data review and statistical recommendations.
For Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology endpoints, it will focus on neurobehavioral data. In these studies, the actual impact of sex on a given endpoint can be very much dependent on the age of the animals being tested. It is widely considered by scientists that very young animals may not demonstrate any differences due to sex. However, these tests are conducted at various stages in development so a statistical plan that accounts for potential sex differences, whilst still allowing for the additional power that may be observed from pooling the sexes is required.

PSI Webinar: Wearable Technologies - Challenges and Opportunities
Wearable technologies and digital health data offer great opportunities for studying patients functionally in real life settings. Actigraphy, for example, can be used as part of clinical trials to collect continuous movement data, but the frequency of data collection results in dense datasets requiring extensive processing and signal detection. In this webinar, a panel of expert speakers will discuss how such aspects can be addressed to help realize the promise of these technologies.
Our annual PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event, will be held online using the Career Fair Plus app on Wednesday 3rd March 2021. The event will include a live online panel discussion and a virtual exhibition session.
