Statistical Methods for Clinical Trials

Group Head:
Prof. Tim Friede,
Prof. Reinhard Hilgers

The methodological research of the working group “Statistical Methods for Clinical Trials ” focuses on innovative designs and analyses for clinical trials with a particular interest in adaptive designs. These developments are inspired through analyses of the specifical requirements from intensive cooperation with clinical partners

These methodological developments are motivated by cooperations with our clinical partners. We work closely with other groups with a research interest in clinical trials including the Medical Informatics and the Genetic Epidemiology. Furthermore the department is connected directly with the Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) of the Univerity Medical Center by the working group Biometry and Data Management in clinical trials and support the CTU in methodological issues.
