IDEAS Dissemination Workshop

The IDEAS Dissemination Workshop will take place from 09.00-17.00 on Wednesday, 26th September at Novartis in Basel, Switzerland (lunch will be provided).

The aim of the workshop is to translate and promote novel methodologies developed by IDEAS.  The event is geared towards statisticians and trialists with an interest in novel methods for early phase clinical trials and will therefore be of interest to those working in academia and industry.

The event will include presentations by our Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).  Further information regarding their individual research projects can be found by clicking on the project titles below:

1. Dose finding for combination trials with many treatments

2. Pooling information on progression-free and overall survival in multi-arm cancer trials

3. Using pre-clinical information to establish a safe dose in first-in-men studies

4. Development of a biomarker score to identify a subgroup of treatment responders

5. The impact of data and safety monitoring board decisions to drop treatments

6. Optimal designs and analysis methods for the development of Biosimilars

7. Subgroup Analyses in Early Phase Clinical Trials

8. Innovative designs for combination of existing therapies

9. Modelling and simulation for the early development of a modified administration route

10. Bias and precision in early phase adaptive studies and its consequences for the decisions about conducting and designing confirmatory studies

11. Interval estimation for dose-finding studies

12. Statistical methods for phase I/II trials of molecularly targeted agents in oncology

13. Statistical aspects of animal to human translation

14. Detecting pharmacodynamic drug-drug interactions

The event will take place in Building 510 in Auditorium U1, Novartis Campus, Basel.  Please access the campus via the main gate on Voltastrasse (there is a tram stop called “Novartis Campus” just outside). A plan of the campus, including the location of the main gate and Building 510 can be seen on this map

The event has been timed to coincide with the end of the EFSPI Regulatory Statistics Meeting being held on the 24th & 25th September in Basel.
