The Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites you to attend the 2-day short course on the Prevention and Treatment of Missing Data in Clinical Trials. The conference is scheduled from November 1 – 2, 2011 and will be hosted in Iselin, New Jersey at the
Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel.

Background and Course Overview

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently commissioned the National Research Council of the National Academies of Science to prepare “a report with recommendations that would be useful for FDA’s development of a guidance for clinical trials on appropriate study designs and follow-up methods to reduce missing data and appropriate statistical methods to address missing data for analysis of results.” After creating the Panel on Handling of Missing Data in Clinical Trials, the National Research Council issued the report entitled The Prevention and Treatment of Missing Data in Clinical Trials in December of 2010.

This two-day short course, developed by five of the panel members (Rod  Little – Michigan, Dan Scharfstein – Johns Hopkins, Joe Hogan – Brown, Jim Neaton – Minnesota, and Jay Siegel – Johnson & Johnson), will provide in-depth coverage of the content of the report. The presentations will be infused by newly developed case studies, which will demonstrate the latest thinking on the design and analysis of randomized studies threatened by biases caused by missing data. Tom Permutt and Bob O’Neil from the FDA will round out the list of presenters to provide a regulatory perspective. 

The course is targeted toward data analysts, statisticians and other quantitative scientists involved in the design, analysis and reporting of results of clinical trials of devices or treatments subject to regulatory review.

The registration fee is $550 per participant; however, companies that register 10 or more employees will receive a 10% discount.* The registration fee includes breakfast and lunch daily, as well as a paperback copy of the National Research Council Report.** 

*Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited.

**Guaranteed to the first 150 registrants
