Abstract: This presentation will briefly describe the general process of drug development and overview key statistical issues from optimal experimental design and genetic data analysis for drug discovery, innovative designs and advanced clinical data analysis methods for clinical trials, to network meta-analysis and cost-effective analysis in outcomes research after drug approval. The key focuses will be on the roles of statistics in drug development decision making, advanced multiple testing procedures, adaptive clinical trial designs, and statistical methods for gene signature development. Real examples will be used to illustrate the enormous impact statistics can make on patients, medical science, and business.
