    Bradford Hill Memorial Lecture https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/bradford-hill-memorial-lecture The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine & The Royal Statistical Society Medical Section Present: 2019 Bradford Hill Memorial Lecture Countering the HIV epidemic: statistical issues in treatment evaluation and policy Speaker: Dr Michael D. Hughes (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, MA.) Abstract: There has been remarkable progress in HIV treatment, changing HIV infection from being a more immediately life-threatening disease to a chronic disease.  Numerous treatments have been evaluated in a long sequence of non-inferiority clinical trials using a surrogate endpoint, and complexities have arisen at the interface of treatment and prevention.  Key policy questions included when during the course of the disease to start treatment, and the extent to which treatment recommendations can be population-based versus personalized.  Dr Hughes will describe some of the interesting statistical issues that have been addressed in advancing treatment for HIV infection. This lecture is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception in the South Courtyard Café. More information can be found here.

  • Data Visualisation in the Popular Victorian Press

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    Data Visualisation in the Popular Victorian Press https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/data-visualisation-in-the-popular-victorian-press Speaker: Dr Alison Hedley -  SSHRC Post-doctoral Research Fellow, McGill University About the Event: Dr Hedley writes “Most forms of data visualisation were encountered mainly by non-specialized readers for the first time in the nineteenth century. The primary medium through which these graphics circulated among mass audiences was the periodical. My postdoctoral research project, “Graphical Thinking: Data Visualisation in Popular British Periodicals, 1830-1910,” is a cultural and material history of the data graphics published in popular journalism. “Graphical Thinking” combines socio-historical analysis and close reading—the micro-analysis of specific print artifacts and genres—with a machine learning process known as image analytics—the macro-analysis of a digitized corpus of journalism. Investigating the publication history of data visualisations in general-audience newspapers and magazines such as the Times, the Illustrated London News, and the Strand, the project recovers an important but largely overlooked chapter in the history of mass visualisation literacy”. “In my presentation, I will discuss my project’s framework and methodology in relation to the nebulous field of data visualisation criticism. I will summarize ongoing case studies to illustrate the thrust of the project and its significance. Data graphics in mass digital journalism deploy many of the same visual practices as those established in the Victorian press. Given that the nineteenth-century history of popular data visualisation continues to shape how we communicate data for mass audiences, studying that history is essential to understanding the cultural functions of digital data graphics”.   Programme:  6.00 to 6:45pm: Author’s presentation  6:45 to 7.15pm: Q & A.   Refreshments alongside registration available from 5.30 pm Attendance is free and open to all, whether fellows of the RSS or not, but pre-registration is required.   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • The statistics of drug testing in sport

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    The statistics of drug testing in sport https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-statistics-of-drug-testing-in-sport About the event: There have been a number of high-profile sports doping cases in recent years. Famous examples include the Russian Olympic scandal, Lance Armstrong, Justin Gatlin and many more. But how can cheating be distinguished from a good performance? How can abnormal measurements in drug tests be differentiated from measurement error? And how sure must the evidence be to punish athletes for failed drug tests? This event will bring together three experts in the field to discuss their experience in the statistics of drug testing. Following the presentations we will have an open discussion on the questions raised.    Speakers:  Professor Andrea Petroczi, Kingston University Dr Reid Aikin, World Anti-Doping Agency Professor Sheila Bird, Medical Research Council Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge Professor Don Berry, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston Event Fees: Fellows: Free  Non-Fellows: £25 Registration is required.

  • Setting national milestones for Wales – approaches and methods workshop

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    Setting national milestones for Wales – approaches and methods workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/setting-national-milestones-for-wales-approaches-and-methods-workshop About the event: The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 sets out 7 well-being goals for Wales. In 2016 Welsh Government set 46 national indicators to track progress in achieving these goals. The Welsh Government are also required to set national milestones against the indicators that will help Ministers understand what progress is being made and whether we, as a nation, are on track. A consultation was launched in January to seek views on the criteria for setting milestones, and against which national indicators we should set milestones.  Once those indicators have been agreed, we will then involve experts, policymakers and stakeholders in setting the milestones.    This workshop session of the RSS South Wales Local Group, led by Welsh Government’s Chief Statistician, is to begin a discussion with statisticians and other experts to consider the possible approaches and the conceptual issues around setting milestones. For example, we may consider: •    What are the potential approaches, e.g absolute or relative measures and how should we decide which are most appropriate? •    How do we set milestones for datasets with a very limited amount of baseline data? •    How should statistical error be considered in setting milestones? •    What other statistical methods can be used to inform the setting of milestones? •    What time horizon would be most appropriate for setting national milestones? Attendance is free and open to all, whether fellows of the RSS or not, but pre-registration is required.   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • The Cox proportional hazards model for treatment effects in observational data: possibilities and pitfalls & AGM

    The Cox proportional hazards model for treatment effects in observational data: possibilities and pitfalls & AGM https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-cox-proportional-hazards-model-for-treatment-effects-in-observational-data-possibilities-and-pitfalls-agm PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE FOR THIS MEETING 3.00 pm Guest speaker: Rik van Eekelen, PhD Candidate, Centre for Reproductive Medicine, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam The Cox proportional hazards model for treatment effects in observational data: possibilities and pitfalls Couples who are unable to conceive after twelve months of trying, and in whom no barriers to conception can be found, are said to have unexplained subfertility. It remains uncertain if these couples should receive in vitro fertilisation (IVF). We compared one cohort that followed couples from their first IVF cycle to two cohorts that followed couples who continued trying to conceive naturally. Three methodological and statistical issues arose during analysis. First, we may ask ourselves: what is the epidemiological framework of the research we are conducting? Could it be considered prediction of a counterfactual? Second, the treatment effect was non-proportional over time. If the event probabilities for both groups are of primary interest, what are our options? Third, we had concerns that the three cohorts were not comparable due to possible selection bias. We showcase the nature of this issue in data on insemination treatment.

    London, United Kingdom

    A comprehensive approach to problems of performance measurement https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/a-comprehensive-approach-to-problems-of-performance-measurement Author: N. I. Fisher, University of Sydney and ValueMetrics, Sydney The paper describes a comprehensive approach to problems of performance measurement that can be used to tackle a wide range of situations, including designing monthly board and leadership reports in enterprises, assessing research quality and monitoring the efficiency and effectiveness of government programmes. It provides a review of various methods for tackling these problems and outlines some current areas of research. Although technical statistical issues are buried somewhat below the surface, statistical thinking is very much part of the main line of argument, meaning that performance measurement should be an area attracting serious attention from statisticians.

    RSS Highland Local Group: Can simple tests based on randomisation be used in assessment of research misconduct? https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rss-highland-local-group-can-simple-tests-based-on-randomisation-be-used-in-assessment-of-research-misconduct Speaker: Dr Mark Bolland, Associate Professor, Dept of Medicine, University of Auckland About the event: A number of high profile cases of research misconduct have occurred where individuals have published numerous clinical trials with fabricated data over many years. Systematic reviewers sometimes identify outlying trials with concerning issues or where the data seem too good to be true. Several cases of research misconduct have now been identified by using simple tests to try and identify whether the trial results are similar to what would be expected if randomisation took place. In this talk, I will present the results of simple techniques we have used in large cases of research fraud, and discuss how they can be used and their problems. The techniques might be useful for people undertaking systematic reviews (e.g. clinical trialists when developing a trial protocol) who come upon outlying trial results or trials that raise concern about research integrity.     Refreshments from 3.30pm with talk starting at 4pm   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

  • Extended Discussion Meeting: Signs and sizes: understanding and replicating statistical findings

    London, United Kingdom

    Extended Discussion Meeting: Signs and sizes: understanding and replicating statistical findings https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extended-discussion-meeting-signs-and-sizes-understanding-and-replicating-statistical-findings L. Held (University of Zurich) ‘A new standard for the analysis and design of replication studies’ A new standard is proposed for the evidential assessment of replication studies. The approach combines a specific reverse Bayes technique with prior-predictive tail probabilities to define replication success. The method gives rise to a quantitative measure for replication success, called the sceptical p-value. The sceptical p-value integrates traditional significance of both the original and the replication study with a comparison of the respective effect sizes. It incorporates the uncertainty of both the original and the replication effect estimates and reduces to the ordinary p-value of the replication study if the uncertainty of the original effect estimate is ignored. The framework proposed can also be used to determine the power or the required replication sample size to achieve replication success. Numerical calculations highlight the difficulty of achieving replication success if the evidence from the original study is only suggestive. An application to data from the Open Science Collaboration project on the replicability of psychological science illustrates the methodology proposed. To be published in Series A; for more information go to the Wiley Online Library. K. Rice (University of Washington, Seattle), T. Bonnett (National Laboratory for Cancer Research, Frederick) and C. Krakauer (University of Washington, Seattle) ‘Knowing the signs: a direct and generalizable motivation of two-sided tests’ Many well-known problems with two-sided p-values are due to their use in hypothesis tests, with ‘reject–accept’ conclusions about point null hypotheses. We present an alternative motivation for p-value-based tests, viewing them as assessments of only the sign of an underlying parameter, where we can conclude that the parameter is positive, negative or simply say nothing either way. Our approach is decision theoretic, but—unusually—we consider the whole set of possible utility functions available. Doing this we show how, in a specific sense, close analogues of familiar one- and two-sided tests are always the optimal decision. We argue that this simplicity could aid non-experts’ understanding and use of tests—and help them to think critically about whether or not tests are appropriate tools for answering their questions of interest. Several extensions are also considered, showing that the simple idea of determining the signs of parameters yields a rich framework for inference.
