The Bay area Biotech-pharma Statistical Workshop (BBSW) is a collaborative initiative supported by companies, academic institutions, and nonprofit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. The theme for this year’s conference is Innovation and Leadership.
Our mission is to promote the practice and impact of statistics in the San Francisco Bay Area. We started as a community of statisticians and are open to participation from broader communities. Our ultimate goal is to improve human health. We bring statistical expertise to inform decision-making in a data-rich world: from articulating questions to furthering scientific understanding of diseases and prevention, from developing innovative methods tailored to particular data types to ultimately bringing transformative solutions to patients and society. We foster collaboration across multi-disciplinary groups, companies, and academic institutions.
