StudyDesign: Development of a simulation environment as a tool to support the design of studies and clinical trials.

Project PI20/00377 ISCII

The design of a study is a critical phase that fixes the range of possible analyses that can be done and limits possible conclusions that come from the results. As such, the evaluating committees of projects, clinical trials, and publications pay special attention to the study design and often dismiss proposals that are not sufficiently reasoned and justified. This project will develop study simulation tools that allow an adequate discussion of the implications of a design facilitating interaction between clinical and statistical researchers.
