Anna Torrång member of EFSPI council

At SDS, we are proud to announce that our Director Biostatistics Anna Torrång (by the computer in this picture), was nominated to be the national contact in Sweden and has now become a council member of EFSPI, the European Federation of Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Eligibility for membership is open to one national group per country placing a major emphasis on technical and scientific activities directed at statisticians who are working in or for the pharmaceutical industry. Thus, EFSPI is engaged in statistical aspects of research, development, production and surveillance of drugs and medical devices. Together with EFSPI Anna will act to promote professional standards of statistics and the standing of the statistical profession in matters pertinent to the European pharmaceutical industry, offer collective expert input on statistical matters to national and international authorities and organisations and to exchange information on and harmonise attitudes to the practice of statistics in the European pharmaceutical industry and within the member groups.

Since the Federation was officially launched in 1992, EFSPI have developed into 10 member states including more than 2000 pharmaceutical statisticians.
