Invited Speakers (more to come)
Prof Martin Posch (Vienna Medical University) will give a talk on “Enrichment Designs for the Development of Personalized Medicine”.
Krista Fischer (Tartu University, Estonian Genome Center) will describe her research project “Causal inference methodology for studies involving conventional and Mendelian randomization”.
Christoph Bock (Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences) will report on the European BLUEPRINT project consortium (www.blueprint‐epigenome.eu/) and outline computational/experimental approaches towards a rational design of epigenetic combination therapies.
Prof. Rudi Knut (Norwegian University of Life Sciences) will be introducing microbiome analysis to our community.
Sebastian Zöllner (University of Michigan, School of Public Health) will be talking about his latest results on coalescent theory in the framework of genetic association studies.
We are very grateful to the working groups “Population Genetics” of the German Region of the International Biometric Society (DR‐IBS), “Genetic Epidemiology” of the German Society for Epidemiology (DGEpi), and “Human Genetics” of the German Society of Medical Informatics, Biometry, and Epidemiology (gmds) for the joint organization of invited talks.
The Mini Symposium on Personalized Medicine, jointly held with the International Society of Clinical Biostatistics, has been finalized. It will start on 28 August at 9.00 am.
The following speakers have been invited: Martin Filipits (Vienna) will start by talking on the clinical background. His presentation will be followed by a presentation on quality control in ‐omics studies, to be given by Bertram Müller‐Myhsok (Munich). After a coffee break, the third speaker will be Joan Bailey‐Wilson (Baltimore), who will focus on risk prediction models in families. Finally, Andreas Ziegler (Lübeck) will talk on study designs for predictive
The Mini Symposium will take place at the University of Vienna, and we will need to take the tram to return to the conference venue for the Educational Workshop on Pharmacogenomics.
The Educational Workshop on Pharmacogenetics, jointly organized by the IGES Education Committee and P‐STAR, the PGRN Statistical Analysis Resource for the coordination of statistical analysis and methods development in the PGRN (https://pgrn‐star.org/), will start on 28 August at 2.00 pm.
