2022 New England Rare Disease Statistics (NERDS) Workshop

The New England Statistical Society (NESS), alongside the 2022 New England Rare Disease Statistics (NERDS) Organizing Committee, is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an in-person workshop (Friday, December 16, 2022) this year at the University of Connecticut, Storrs campus.

Participants are invited to attend either in-person or virtually (hybrid) based on their personal preference. The workshop will consist of several talks and open discussions focused on the current state of statistical and clinical research in rare disease drug development, as well as ample opportunity for networking.

Although we have had highly successful virtual webinar series over the past two years (>600 registrants in 2021), this year we aim to keep the conversation going with a hybrid 1-day workshop aimed to keep our rare disease community connected and informed of recent advances and research. We are all thrilled to bring NERDS back in-person for the first time since 2019!

Registration is now open at https://nerds.nestat.org. Once you register, you will receive notifications regarding any changes to the program and agenda, as well as all NERDS-related announcements.

If you have any questions, please contact program chair Jeff Palmer (Jeffrey.P.Palmer@pfizer.com) or NESS Secretary Jianan Hui (jianan.hui@servier.com).
