Collaborate in teams
Before we go ahead and give patients treatments, we need to make sure that we have robustly designed our trial to give us the best chance of being able to demonstrate that the experimental new treatment is superior to the comparator control treatment.
Designing and conducting a clinical trial requires expertise from a wide range of professions, so statisticians and programmers get to enjoy working in cross-functional teams comprising medics, study managers, data managers, regulatory experts, and many more.
Their skills in maths and statistics allow them to make very valuable contributions to the clinical trial. Explore below just some of the activities they do in their day to day jobs.
