From Data to Knowledge / Advancing Life Sciences

The 5th Conference of the Central European Network will be held at Biozentrum of the University of Basel, Switzerland, September 3-7.

The conference theme “From Data to Knowledge / Advancing Life Sciences.” highlights the special and important role of biometricians when extracting knowledge from data with the ultimate goal of advancing life sciences. The CEN Conference is a forum for researchers, statisticians, and industry representatives to discuss and present recent developments in biometry with its applications in life sciences, medicine, pharmacology, research and development in pharmaceutical industry, environmental statistics, and genomics.
