Statistics as Alchemy: Turning data into gold

Celebrating 50 years of the Masters in Medical Statistics

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine MSc Medical Statistics: the first students graduated in 1969 when Peter Armitage was Professor of Medical Statistics.

To celebrate, we warmly invite you to a 2-day symposium on 11-12 April.

We are delighted by the line-up of stimulating speakers, ranging across causal inference, electronic health records, innovative trial designs and estimands. Peter Armitage has recorded a welcome message to start the meeting. The symposium includes the Bradford Hill Memorial Lecture which will be given by Michael Hughes (Harvard University) on 11 April. Other speakers confirmed so far include: Shadrac Agbla, Deborah Ashby, Nicky Best, James Carpenter, Nick Jewell, Ruth Keogh, Alan Phillips, Stuart Pocock, Linda Sharples, Liam Smeeth, Jonathan Sterne, Jenny Thompson, Stijn Vansteelandt.

Equally importantly, it’s a great opportunity to catch up with friends and make new ones – not least at our 50th party on the evening of 11th April!
