Dr. Francisco J. Zagmutt, Managing Partner and Dr. Kurt Rinehart, Risk and Statistical Consultant, at EpiX Analytics, presented a webinar for Palisade Corp. on Dec. 11, 2014 entitled, Applied and efficient modeling in natural resources: case studies of mining and oil and gas. Price volatility, weather-dependent demand cycles, changing regulations, technological developments, and many other factors contribute to the complexity of modeling. Good model design is instrumental to building simple models of complex systems than can deliver immediate and valuable insight to decision makers. Several case studies from EpiX Analyticsí client work were discussed where a balance is met between model realism and structural simplicity.

EpiX invited to present at strategic policy workshop

Dr. Francisco J. Zagmutt has been invited to speak at a U.S. Regulatory Policy Workshop, to discuss risk analysis methods to assess and balance risks in the formulation and dating period of vaccines. The workshop will take place at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, USA, on April 21-22, 2015.

The workshop will gather scientists and experts from the public and private sector to discuss regulatory issues in vaccine potency. In his talk and follow-up round-table discussion, Dr. Zagmutt will focus on how analytical methods from disciplines such as Health Outcomes Research, epidemiology, Bayesian statistics, and Operations Research could be applied to create a framework to determine optimal vaccine potency based on efficacy, safety, and quality targets.
