Every year the Biostatistics Department at the Harvard School of Public Health organizes a workshop dedicated to important and timely topics in the application of statistics to clinical trials. The event is intended for researchers from industry, academia, and the regulatory agencies, and provides a neutral ground for discussing important and potentially controversial issues related to the clinical development of drugs and devices.
The first workshop took place in 1993. Until 2009 the workshops were sponsored by the Schering-Plough Corporation, and information on those workshops can be found on this site using the links below. In late 2009 Merck & Co, Inc. acquired Schering-Plough and is now sponsoring the event. Please visit our new website here.
