ISCB Course by Stephen Senn at Accelsiors: Statistical Issues in Drug Development
Stephen Senn (recipient of Bradford Hill medal of the Royal Statistical Society (2009) and the George C Challis prize for biostatistics of the University of Florida (2001)) has held a two days lecture in Budapest on the 14-15 October 2016 .
On the first day he provided an overview of statistics in drug development from several perspectives and is suitable for all who work in drug development and have an interest in statistics. Amongst matters covered were the value of control, randomisation and blinding in clinical trials, sources of bias, including regression to the mean and some aspects of sample size determination. Day two was more technical and is aimed more specifically at statisticians, epidemiologists and others with a more quantitative background and provided perspectives on the use of baselines, measurement of outcomes, design and analysis of more complex trials and the challenges of personalised medicine.
