The ASA Biopharmaceutical Section Nonclinical Biostatistics Conference is hosted by the ASA Biopharmaceutical Section in cooperation with the Rutgers University Statistics Department. The biennial conference lasts four days with invited and contributed talks on nonclinical biostatistics topics with speakers from industry, regulatory, and academia. Two short courses are offered on the first conference day. Click on the Registration menu item to register for the conference.

The seventh U.S. conference dedicated entirely to nonclinical biostatistics topics took place June 21-24, 2021.  While we would have loved to host the conference at the Rutgers University College Avenue Student Center located at 126 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 as we did in 2019, given the uncertainty of schools lockdowns, business travel restrictions, safety concerns expressed by attendees/invited speakers, it made the large gathering in June 2021 untenable. The conference committee decided to host this event virtually.  With the virtual platform Pathable, we created a virtual environment in which attendees had ample opportunity to network, share experiences and discuss current scientific issues with colleagues and leaders in the field.  A partial 2021 NCB Conference program is here.  The 2019 NCB Conference program may be viewed here.
