Phase I dose-finding trials: practical application of new designs for statisticians (Oct-18)

23 Oct 2018

In this two day course you will learn about the types of novel model-based designs that are increasingly used in phase I dose-finding studies, such as the Continual Reassessment Method, and how these approaches could lead to more efficient clinical trials.

The course in October will introduce you to the key concepts of model-based designs, and focus on practical application. Using real trial examples and computer classes, you will: evaluate different study designs; identify an appropriate approach for a trial; develop parts of a trial protocol; and analyse the data.

The sessions are led by statisticians with extensive experience in designing, conducting and analysing dose-finding trials, both in oncology and non-oncology settings in academia and industry.

Target audience: This course is aimed at statisticians, of all levels of experience, in academic or pharmaceutical institutions.

Course requirements: Attendees must bring their own laptop computer with the most recent version of R (3.5.0) installed. A basic knowledge of R is desirable, but not essential.

Course tutors: Graham Wheeler (UCL); Christina Yap (Birmingham); Kristian Brock (Birmingham); Adrian Mander (Cambridge); John Kirkpatrick (Roche)
