The Conference will be taking place in Sheffield from the 20th to the 21st June at The Edge and we are excited to host a series of fantastic talks and presentations focused on our conference theme this year, Celebrating effective collaborations in health and care research: from statisticians to health researchers, patients and public. Our keynotes this year are Prof Suzanne Mason, Prof Yemisi Takwoingi and Prof Sandra Eldridge in addition to the excellent line up of posters and rapid fire talks, the breakout sessions will feature a diversity of topics focused on best practice in areas that include effective patient and public involvement in research (PPI) and equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI), importance of best practice in research design and analysis in imaging, rare diseases and critical care, redesigning ongoing trails, rethinking career pathways and much more.  

The NIHR Statistics Career Development Group are hosting an Early Career Morning on the morning of 20th June prior to the main NIHR Statistics conference.  This will be an opportunity for early career statisticians to find out more about the NIHR Statistics Group and how to make the most of the conference.  As well as a brief introduction to the NIHR Statistics Group, there will be a series of short talks from invited speakers, and an exercise to get to know the other attendees. 

The conference will be held in hybrid format with bespoke technical support offered by Beaconhouse Events team that will allow us to stream all breakout sessions, keynotes and rapid-fire talks held in the Main Conference Room.  

The provisional programme for NIHR Statistics Group Conference 2024 is available here.  

All are welcome to attend – it will be of relevance to statisticians, data scientists and those with an active interest in statistics and data science. 

A unique feature of the NIHR Statistics Group conference is to provide a forum for applied statisticians to discuss ideas and challenges they encounter and much of this discussion takes place within the breakout sessions.  The Conference will run up to 10 such sessions. Breakout sessions are approximately 40 minutes long with 20 minutes reserved for questions and open discussion. Materials presented within one session can be a series of short talks or workshop style discussion activities.
