Statistical Observations on SARS-CoV-2 & Crisis Vaccine Clinical Testing.
Traditional vaccine clinical development is an undertaking involving meticulous, multiple studies in multiple populations at risk of infection and disease over multiple years. SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 vaccine development is following this traditional development pathway, but accelerated Phase I-II-III clinical programs are being applied (c.f., USA FDA guidances 2020). This is not the first time vaccines have been manufactured and tested quickly to meet a public health crisis (1976, 2009). Selected statistical concepts pertaining to vaccine efficacy and safety, relevant during the design and implementation of such crisis programs, will be discussed.

PSI Webinar: Wearable Technologies - Challenges and Opportunities
Wearable technologies and digital health data offer great opportunities for studying patients functionally in real life settings. Actigraphy, for example, can be used as part of clinical trials to collect continuous movement data, but the frequency of data collection results in dense datasets requiring extensive processing and signal detection. In this webinar, a panel of expert speakers will discuss how such aspects can be addressed to help realize the promise of these technologies.
Our annual PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event, will be held online using the Career Fair Plus app on Wednesday 3rd March 2021. The event will include a live online panel discussion and a virtual exhibition session.
