Statistical analysis for in vivo and in vitro scientists
Jan 31 @ 11:30 – 14:30

This course consists of three 3-hour webinar sessions (including discussion activities utilising the group chat function, polls, individual activities and breaks).

Session one will cover:

• Understanding, identifying, minimising variation and its impact.

• How the scientific question and experimental design influence the choice of statistical analysis method.

• What summary statistics are available and when to use them.

• Why and how to transform your data, plus strategies for dealing with outliers.

• The structure of a significance test using a two-sample t-test as an example.

Session two will cover:

• What measures of precision should be used and when, including SD Vs SEM plus confidence interval.

• Non-parametric statistical tests and other simple tests to compare more complex data sets.

• Basics of ANOVA and why it should often be used instead of multiple t-tests.

Session three will cover:

• What experimental designs and data features require an extension to statistical analysis methods such as ANOVA and how to incorporate them.

• ANOVA for randomised block designs and factorial treatment structures

• Analysis of Covariance, ANCOVA Vs Change from Baseline.

• Assumptions of ANOVA and ANCOVA

PLEASE NOTE: To join the course sessions you will need a Mac, PC or mobile device that you can use to access the session by downloading the GoToWebinars mobile or desktop app, or using your web browser (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). You will also need an internet connection of 1Mbps or better (broadband recommended), or a mobile device with 3G reception or better (wifi recommended). – Your registration details will be used to send session reminders, pre-course information and provide post-session access to the recordings, handouts and other course related material.

Female Reproductive System (BSTP continuing ed symposium 5)
Mar 8 @ 14:00 – Mar 17 @ 17:30

CES 5 will be held over two weeks – on the afternoons of Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th, Thursday 10th, Tuesday 15th, Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th March 2022, from 13.00 – 16.30 (GMT+0/UCT+0) each day.

Continuing Education Symposium Objective:

The aim of the Continuing Education Symposium is to provide an interactive environment to enhance your knowledge in the field of toxicological, discovery, clinical, experimental or veterinary pathology.  The series of Continuing Education Symposiums are designed to refresh participants’ knowledge and understanding of core principles, as well as discuss any important recent advances.  Future BSTP Continuing Education Symposiums will also focus on specific organ systems.

Continuing Education Symposium Description:

This Continuing Education Symposium will cover an overview of the female reproductive system in preclinical animal species.

The format will include presentations, case histories and active participation of delegates.

Who should attend:

The Continuing Education Symposium programme is intended for toxicological and discovery pathologists (and other scientists working with animal models), clinical pathologists and toxicologists as well as non-clinical regulatory scientists. The aim is to make the content relevant to both those who have been working for a number of years and who feel they can benefit from an update (as well as contributing their experience to the group discussions that will take place) as well as those who are in the early stages of their careers.

Registration fees are for full attendance (6 afternoons) and no discount will be given for part attendance.
