Best Nonclinical Biostatistics Papers Invited for Competition

The ASA Biopharmaceutical Section Nonclinical Biostatistics Working Group—dedicated to promoting the application and understanding of the nonclinical biostatistics discipline in biopharmaceutical industry—is inviting submissions for the 2019 Best Nonclinical Biostatistics Paper Award.

The paper must address a relevant topic in nonclinical biostatistics. This would include topics covered by the 2016 Lanju Zhang book, Nonclinical Biostatistics for Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries. Topics such as biomarker discovery and predictive modeling, which do not directly concern trial design (phases I-IV), are also welcome.

All eligible papers must have been published (or accepted for publication) in English in refereed journals between January 1, 2012, and March 1, 2019. Send an electronic copy of your paper to by March 15, 2019. Include contact information (e.g., email addresses) for all co-authors.

An award plaque will be presented to the winning author (or co-authors) at the 2019 Nonclinical Biostatistics Conference at Rutgers University.
