Staburo’s Highlights from PSI 2024

From June 16-19, our Staburo colleagues Markus Waser, Yesilda Balavarca, Laura Schlieker, Hannes Buchner and Rebecca Freudling attended an enlightening PSI conference at the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, covering topics like Bayesian Borrowing, Estimands, and Biomarkers ESIG. The presentation on “Neurodiversity at Work” and its panel discussion on Tuesday were particularly impactful. Social events, including a memorable Gala Dinner with a fantastic DJ, added to the experience. A special session on Monday featured one-minute summaries of all 60 posters, where Hannes Buchner was presenting. Our poster, “Conditional vs Marginal Effects – A Systematic Review of OS and PFS on,” generated significant interest.

The Biomarkers European Special Interest Group (ESIG) held a session titled “Advancing Biomarker Insights in Precision Medicine and Digital Health.” Highlights included Marzia A. Scelsi’s talk on digital biomarkers and a presentation on machine learning in precision medicine by Karl Köchert and Nils Ternès. The conference also allowed for a face-to-face meeting of the Biomarker ESIG, with lunch in the Executive Lounge of Beurs van Berlage. Members had the chance to network with co-leads Nicole Krämer and Guillaume Desachy, as well as other key members like Karl Köchert, Nils Ternès, Jinesh Shah, and Kostas Sechidis.

Overall, it was an incredible experience filled with knowledge sharing and networking. We’re excited to apply these new insights to future projects!
