Who and Why should someone attendWhy :
After having conducted a course on “Basic Principles of Clinical Trials” for 7 years, and trained nearly 300 researchers at the Biostatistics Resource and Training Centre (BRTC) at CMC-Vellore, now we would like to train researchers in “Advanced Clinical Trial Methods.”
As medical science advances rapidly, clinical trial designers and biostatisticians need to keep abreast of current methodological developments. As the literature is so vast and journals are published so frequently, it is difficult to keep up with recent developments, Many of these come from the pharmaceutical industry and not so much from academic institutions. The goal of this short course is to summarize and impart the recent developments in clinical trial methodology to participants who already have some knowledge on the basic principles of clinical trials and of the statistical methods for their analyses.
This short course provides a comprehensive summarization of recent developments regarding methodologies in clinical trial design and analyses. It covers important topics in early-phases of clinical development such as Adaptive Designs for phase II and III designs.
Faculty: The faculty who have participated in such trials that dealt with recent developments will share their experiences. The rich research experience from the Department of Biostatistics of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA and from the Christian Medical College, Vellore, India will be present.
Who: The medical doctors and statisticians who have attended a basic clinical trials design and analysis course at CMC-Vellore or elsewhere should apply.
The course will be held at the Biostatistics Resource and Training Center (BRTC), Dept. of Biostatistics, (Adjacent to College Chapel), Christian Medical College, Bagayam, Vellore 632 002.
