Special Interest Groups

Our special interest groups (SIGs) are a forum for members to discuss topics of mutual interest, keep updated on developments in a particular area of industry, to organise events on their specialist field and/or to collaborate on developing the science of that field. Our current SIGs cover a wide range of topics as set out below. We also have a working party looking at the statistical implications of greater clinical trial data sharing and a group of volunteers providing a statistical briefing service on health stories in the lay media.
 

For further information on any of the SIGs, take a look at their pages on the website using the links below, or for general enquiries please contact Adam Crisp (adam.x.crisp@gsk.com) PSI Scientific Committee SIG liaison lead.

  • PSI Webinar: Adaptive design: updated draft FDA guidance and its implications - Dates: 11 – 11 Jun, 2019

    In September 2018 the FDA published a guidance on adaptive design for clinical trials of drugs and biologics, updating (not finalizing) its initial draft from February 2010. The main focus of the webinar will be to provide an overview of its main contents, which will be presented by Jürgen Hummel (PPD). In addition, Kaspar Rufibach (Roche) will introduce an open-source statistical software for adaptive designs, RPACT (an R package that enables the design and analysis of confirmatory adaptive clinical trials). Kit Roes will also comment on the guidance from a European Regulatory perspective, which will be followed by a brief panel discussion.
  • Adaptive Designs - Dates: 24 – 24 Jun, 2019

    During this meeting we will hear about adaptive sample allocation for phase II/III designs, a new CONSORT extension reporting guideline for adaptive designs, regulatory aspects and case studies.
