Danish Society for Biopharmaceutical Statistics

The Danish Society for Biopharmaceutical Statistics (DSBS) was formed in March 1992 as an independent non-profit association. The aims of DSBS are to further the exchange of information between professional statisticians working for the pharmaceutical industry in Denmark and abroad, to promote professional standards, and to constitute an expert body in biopharmaceutical statistical matters. About 150 statisticians, representing 13 companies, are members of the society
