The 43rd Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) was held from 21-25 August 2022, in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, as a hybrid conference (with in-person face to face and virtual attendance options).

The ISCB was founded in 1978 to stimulate research in the design and analysis of clinical research and increase the relevance of statistics to the world of clinical medicine. Its Annual Conference is a highly appreciated academic event that attracts 700 to 1000 researchers from the 5 continents. The Annual Conference programme extends over 5 days and includes teaching sessions, invited talks by specialists in the field, oral presentations of research papers, workshops, and poster displays.

Who should attend?

As with previous ISCB annual conferences, there were talks on a wide range of statistical topics, such as recent advances in causal inference, challenges of ageing, master protocols, efficient designs in clinical trials, and communicating research to the general public. The scientific program was of interest to statisticians, clinicians and members of other disciplines related to clinical practice, such as epidemiologists and statistical geneticists.
