MICHR launches Applied Biostatistics Sciences Network

January 17, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) is developing the Applied Biostatistical Sciences (ABS) Network to provide an environment for statisticians and analysts at U-M to interact, share techniques and collaborate. This will be accomplished through online resources, face-to-face meetings and other activities.

MICHR will establish regular ABS Network meetings where cutting-edge methods and tools will be discussed.

One such meeting will feature Cathie Spino, D.Sc, School of Public Health, who will be presenting on Comparing and Communicating Adaptive Designs for a Dose-Ranging Study.

Adaptive designs have been a recent topic in clinical trials literature. In her lecture, Spino will review a taxonomy of adaptive designs used in clinical trials and present an example used for an appropriate adaptive design in a dose-ranging study for deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis. Since these are non-standard designs, the discussion will include the challenges in presenting the dose-selection strategies and results of clinical trials simulations.

The lecture will take place on Jan. 30 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Danto Auditorium at the CVC. Zingerman’s will be serving lunch with a vegetarian option.

Please register here, as seating is limited.

If you have any questions or other feedback, email MICHR-ABSNetworkAdmin@umich.edu.
