The course will be organized on Monday 9th of April, 2018. 
The MolMed School organizes for the third time this one-day introductory course in GraphPad Prism, together with BITS (BioInformatics Training and Services), an institutional service facility from VIB, a life sciences research institute in Flanders, Belgium.


After the basic statistics theory session in the morning, you should be able to:

  • Understand basic statistical concepts and methods for statistical analysis of life sciences data
  • Interpret and critically assess the results of basic statistical analyses

In the afternoon, we will apply the theory in Prism in a hands-on session, so you will learn:

  • What Prism is, where to find more information, how to install and use it
  • How to use Prism to handle data: reading data
  • How to use Prism to create graphics
  • How to use basic statistical techniques in Prism: mean, variance, confidence intervals, correlations, hypothesis testing...


09:30 - 17.00 hours, in computer room COO-5 (note! was COO-6, but is changed)

Coffee & tea: 11.00 - 11.15 hours
Lunch: 12.45 - 13.30 hours 
Coffee & tea: 15.00 - 15.15 hours 


This training gives an introduction to the use of statistics for basic analyses of life sciences data. The theoretical background will be applied in a hands-on session on real-life data using the statistical software GraphPad Prism. GraphPad Prism combines scientific graphing, curve fitting (nonlinear regression), statistics and data organization.

Please note that we will make use of version 6 during this course

General information

Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed

From January 1st, 2017 the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%

• However, the Research Management course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice

• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.

  • The course fees of research master’s students will be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
  • Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
  • However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

Some courses have less course days: SPSS 3 days, Survival Analysis 2 days, Management 2 days, Presenting 1,5 days and also other may be shorter as indicated on the website.

Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.

All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.
