My Research – Session 4: Risk Predictions – Statistical versus Machine learning methods

Session 4 (Wednesday 12th May at 19:00 GMT) –  CLICK HERE to REGISTER

 

We would like to invite you to join our monthly ‘My Research’ sessions. These sessions are delivered by members that have undertaken an audit or evaluation. They will spend 10 minutes describing their career pathway and the next 10 minutes about the research methods that they used. There will be time for detailed questions following the talk. These sessions will enable members to learn about quantitative and qualitative methods and the learning may guide and help you in your future projects. We also hope that this will be a good opportunity to learn about different career pathways in cancer pharmacy.

 

The session will be delivered by: Pinkie Chambers and Bruce Burnett
