The clinical trial design process has been irrevocably altered by cloud-based computing. Until recently, it would take a statistician a few days to design five clinical trial designs. Now, a well-resourced statistician can simulate and model well over 100,000 designs in less than 30 minutes. How does this affect the process of designing clinical trials?
According to Yannis Jemiai, Chief Scientific Officer at Cytel, this combination of technology and process changes represent a great opportunity. Yannis argues that statisticians should be used strategically as well as tactically throughout the design process to help R&D teams drive commercial value for greater speed, savings and success.
