Course summary

Statistics is a fundamental discipline in clinical trials. Statisticians ensure that study designs are statistically robust so that research questions can be answered. They carry out statistical tests, and assess uncertainty in the results, to determine whether the data support the research hypotheses. The field of clinical trials itself is expanding given the constant progress in biomedical research, including molecularly targeted therapies in cancer, and messenger RNA technologies in vaccines, to cite two exciting examples of recent years.

Entry requirements
