Biostatistics, bioinformatics intersect to produce well-designed trials and robust data
January 31, 2024
In clinical research, appropriate use of biostatistics is crucial to a successful trial. Biostatistical methods determine the appropriate size and type of study population, underpin the entire statistical analysis plan (SAP) applied throughout the trial and play a key role in ensuring the integrity and quality of data generated during the study. This helps ensure that PIs and other key research staff draw the right conclusions about an investigative treatment’s performance based on the evidence provided.
