The Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet invites all biomedical researchers/practitioners with a mathematics/statistics/computational-based degree to a network meeting. The goal is for researchers in biostatistics and related disciplines to interact and discuss possibilities for collaboration.

The program includes three "research presentations" (one each in biostatistics, bioinformatics, and AI/ML) along with presentations describing developments in organisation and infrastructure in these fields.

Target audience

Biomedical researchers/practitioners with a mathematics/statistics/computational-based degree (e.g., mathematics, statistics, bioinformatics, engineering, physics, computer science). The organisers are especially interested in meeting researchers from outside KI. We welcome colleagues from all branches (academia/industry/government) and geographic locations. 

Registration is not required. Everyone in the target audience is welcome to attend both the lectures and the mingle.

The event is co-hosted by the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Clinicum analytic network.
