Dr. Jerry Radich, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Join us on Sunday evening as we kick off the conference with a presentation from Dr. Jerry Radich of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Dr. Radich is a medical oncologist specializing in the molecular genetics of leukemia, and a world-recognized expert in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, where he leads the Molecular Oncology Lab. He and his team study why patients do or don’t respond after therapy- as he calls it, “the genetics of luck". Check out his TEDx talk, "Surviving Cancer: The Biology of Luck"!

Pub Trivia Night

Monday, April 30, 5:30-7:30 PM

We'll use a similar format to PharmaSUG's 2017 Pub Trivia Night, with the help of an outside trivia company who will be running our 2018 Pub Trivia Night competition. All are welcome to play, including those who might not be SAS experts! Never fear though, our crack Pub Trivia conference committee members will be throwing in a bunch of challenging SAS questions! Come play along or just enjoy watching others compete. Either way, it's sure to be a fun evening. Refreshments will be provided along with a cash bar, and prizes will be awarded to the winning teams.

Casino Night with DJ and Karaoke

Tuesday, May 1, 7:30-11:30 PM
Cascade Ballroom

Kick back and enjoy the final evening of the conference with a return of our popular Casino Night- a fun-filled evening of casino games including blackjack, craps, roulette, poker, and slot machines! This event is perfect for experts and novices alike. It's also good statistical practice with no money involved. Professional croupiers and dealers will teach you everything you need to know about the games and ensure that everyone has a great experience. Card counters welcome!

If you prefer to simply socialize, there will be plenty of seating available. Refreshments and prizes are provided. This year's event will also include a DJ and karaoke!
