    One hundred fifty attendees converged on the Rutgers University campus in Piscataway, New Jersey, to participate in the 2017 Nonclinical Biostatistics Conference June 12–14. Held for the fifth time, the biennial conference provided a venue for the presentation and discussion of scientific and statistical issues relevant to nonclinical biostatistics.

    Jointly organized by the Biopharmaceutical Section and Rutgers University Department of Statistics, the program featured 21 invited and contributed talks, 30 poster presentations, special sessions for graduate students, and a keynote address delivered by ASA President-elect Lisa LaVange.

    To kick off the conference, the following two short courses were offered:

    Practical Bayesian Calculations in Proc MCMC
    Instructor: Fang Chen, SAS Institute

    Topics of Advanced Experimental Design
    Instructor: Steve Buyske, Rutgers University Department of Statistics

    The Best Nonclinical Biostatistics Paper Award was presented to Jianchun Zhang, Wenjia Li, Lorin K. Roskos, and Harry Yang for their 2017 Journal of Immunological Methods paper, “Immunogenicity Assay Cut Point Determination Using Nonparametric Tolerance Limit.”

    Additionally, two graduate students—Yalin Zhu of the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Han Ding Xie of Rutgers—walked away with best poster award prizes of $250.

    All 2017 NCB conference oral presentations and posters are available on the website.
