The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) is developing the Applied Biostatistical Sciences (ABS) Network to provide an environment for statisticians and analysts at U-M to interact, share techniques, and collaborate. We’ll do this through online resources, face-to-face meetings, and other activities.
We will establish regular ABS Network meetings where we’ll discuss and share cutting-edge methods and tools.
Adaptive designs have been a recent topic in clinical trials literature. Cathie Spino, DSc, School of Public Health, will be presenting on Comparing and Communicating Adaptive Designs for a Dose-Ranging Study. She will review a taxonomy of adaptive designs used in clinical trials and present an example used for an appropriate adaptive design in a dose-ranging study for deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis. Since these are non-standard designs, the discussion will include the challenges in presenting the dose-selection strategies and results of clinical trials simulations.
The lecture takes place on January 30 from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Danto Auditorium at the CVC. Zingerman's will be serving lunch, with a vegetarian option.
Please register here, as seating is limited.
