Clinical Trial and Biostatistics Think Tank – Working Session


Clinical Trial and Biostatistics Think Tank


Working Session:

March 5, 2020  HSLC 1325, 1pm-2pm

The Clinical Trials Program of the Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics would like to announce the launch of working sessions entitled “Clinical Trial and Biostatistics Think Tank.” The purpose of these working sessions is to facilitate a collaborative environment between clinical investigators and biostatisticians when a trial proposal is brought forth. Early discussions have shown to be beneficial to both the investigator and the statistical team. Study design and early planning are key factors for success in grant funding and ultimate implementation of clinical trials. These sessions will be held from time to time when a clinical investigator approaches the Clinical Trials Program and would like to consult and collaborate on a randomized controlled trial proposal. The working sessions will be held on select Wednesdays during 11 AM-12 PM or 1-2 PM.

We are very pleased to announce that our featured speaker will be Dr. Luke M. Funk Associate Professor, Director of MIS Research Chief of General Surgery, William S. Middleton VA; Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery.

He will present “Identifying and Addressing Barriers and Facilitators to Bariatric Surgery within the VA”.

If you are interested in receiving future announcements and signing up for an email list, please contact Kelly Miller at or (608) 262-8141.
