The thematic network BIOSTATNET aims to link together Spanish researchers in biostatistics with an integrative, multidisciplinary, flexible, and open focus.
This is a pioneer network in Spain mainly consisting of 8 nodes leaded by statisticians from different universities with own research projects and teaching experience in biostatistical matters and working closely with biomedical researchers. BIOSTATNET gathers and represents the main lines of investigation of each of the nodes involved. Its main objectives are:

  • Coordinate research and teaching of biostatistics in Spain, allowing for an international projection;
  • Promote an adequate education in biostatistics;
  • Help to show its transparency and applicability in biomedicine.

Summer School on Modern Methods in Biostatistics and Epidemiology
31 MAY -13 JUNE 2020. CISON DI VALMARINO-TREVISO, ITALY CASTELLO BRANDOLINI COLOMBAN   The Summer School on Modern Methods in Biostatistics and Epidemiology is held in the Brandolini Colomban Castle located in Cison di Valmarino, in the Northeast of Italy.   The School offers introductory and advanced courses in biostatistics and epidemiology, and their application to clinical and etiology research and public health. Modern medical research is becoming increasingly formalized. Today researchers, physicians and health professionals are encouraged to use scientific data, including controlled experiments and well-structured observational data as the source for decision making. Evidence based medicine is entering into many subspecialties, including public health science.   This School provides participants insight into available analytical tools for planning research, handling data and interpreting results. Better understanding of scientific medical papers is also a goal and it requires not only knowledge of the topic being investigated but also an understanding of the research methods being used.   The final deadline for registration is May 24, 2020.   More info about it in:
