Event Title

My PSM Biostatistics Internship at Zoetis

Location

Hager-Lubbers Exhibition Hall

Start Date

19-4-2016 3:30 PM

Description

Background and Purpose: The Biometrics department of Zoetis supports the Pharmaceutical and Biologics Discovery and Development, and the Laboratory Sciences departments’ statistical needs. These include statistical consulting, experimental design and power calculations, protocol and report reviews, randomizations, data summary and analysis, and interacting with Regulatory Authorities. Purpose: The purpose of this internship was to provide assistance to the members of the Biometrics Department while enhancing my skills as a biostatistician. Experience: During my time there, I performed equivalence analysis to aid in the software validation for the calculation of relative potency with potency assays. In addition, I developed a program to present the graphical representation of the Nonlinear 3 Parameter Logistic Model for optical density on dilution for given treatments and the corresponding Upper Asymptote, Change Parameter, and Midpoint for each treatment studied. Other projects I worked on included improving the program for ruggedness test within ELISA assay validations and researching the LINES option within the statistical software SAS. Impact: Overall, this experience gave me the chance to apply my statistical knowledge to contribute to the processes of the Biometrics Department at Zoetis, while gaining additional skills that have proven to be an integral part of my career development.
