R is quickly gaining popularity within the pharmaceutical industry due to it being a very powerful object-orientated language, and is able to produce analyses and high quality graphics. It can be used for high performance computing and allows easy integration with other software.
This course is aimed at statisticians who are experienced with other software languages (such as SAS) and would like to increase their proficiency in R.
Participation will provide access to extensive course materials in the form of a ‘bookdown’ site. However, this is designed as a hands-on, interactive course. Both you and the trainers will work entirely within the RStudio Cloud development environment, which will remain accessible between virtual sessions in order to further explore and cement your understanding.
Topics covered include:
1. Introduction to R and RStudio
2. Data types and vectors
3. Welcome to tidyverse
4. Importing/exporting data
5. Handling data
7. Summaries and aggregation
8. Setting and merging
9. Transposing data
10. Introduction to statistical analysis in R
11. R Graphics with ggplot2
b. Aesthetics and groups
c. Graph types: geoms
d. Panelling: faceting
e. Themes and styling

PSI VisSIG Wonderful Wednesdays
Our monthly webinar explores examples of innovative data visualisations relevant to our day to day work. Each month a new dataset is provided from a clinical trial or other relevant example, and participants are invited to submit a graphic that communicates interesting and relevant characteristics of the data.
The field of data visualization is the intersection of data journalism, statistics, graphic design, computer science, neuroscience, and cognitive psychology. We will focus on the latter two fields of data visualization as it relates to data visualization: neuroscience and cognitive psychology.
PSI One-Day Meeting: Missing Data in Clinical Trials - Past, Present and Future
At this meeting we will present the evolution of missing data approaches, looking at how they have been handled in the past, the current established missing data approaches and the impact of the new ICH E9 R1 addendum on the handling of missing data, focussing in particular on the treatment policy estimand.
R is quickly gaining popularity within the pharmaceutical industry due to it being a very powerful object-orientated language, and is able to produce analyses and high quality graphics. This will be a hands-on interactive course and will utilise the RStudio Cloud development environment.
As a statistician in the Biostatistics and Programming Department, you will be responsible for the methodological and statistical aspects of projects in early clinical development in order to optimize the early development plan and ensure its coherence.
As a Director of Statistics, you will be accountable for guiding statisticians in their work, performing senior review of documentation and output deliveries, providing oversight and advising on best practices approach to statistics for clinical trials.
