"Advances in Clinical Trial Statistics: Multiplicity Adjustment and Sequential, Multiple Assignment, Randomized Trials"
November 20th and 21st, 2014
The symposium will consist of an interdisciplinary series of presentations centered around two main themes: Multiplicity adjustment in clinical trials and the emerging use of Sequential, Multiple Assignment, Randomized Trials (SMARTs) for personalized medicine discovery. Biostatisticians and clinical scientists will describe recent advances in these two areas, ranging from practical aspects to methodological developments.
The symposium honors the late Yosef Hochberg, a graduate of the Department of Biostatistics at UNC-CH who made fundamental contributions in the area of multiple testing procedures.
A tutorial will lead off the portion of the program devoted to each theme, followed by two scientific sessions and two keynote lectures by leading researchers in that area. On the first day, a poster session/reception featuring presentations from both areas will be held following the scientific sessions.
This symposium will be of interest to clinical trial practitioners in industry and academia as well as others who have interest in recent and future directions in clinical trials and personalized medicine. We also hope the presentations and accompanying discussions will initiate future discoveries and progress in these important areas.
Registration is currently limited to 175 participants. The registration fee is $250 for regular attendees and $125 for students.
The symposium organizers gratefully acknowledge the support of Quintiles and Prosoft Clinical.
