We carry out research in Medical Statistics, especially clinical trials and epidemiology.
Most of the recent projects have come from data generated through links with the Institute of Primary Care Sciences who have access to large General Practice databases,and data generated from longitudinal surveys and randomized clinical trials. Novel applications from existing statistical techniques can be applied such as using latent class analysis, meta-analysis, survival and prognostic modelling which seek to answer specific clinical questions such as determining appropriate risk factors for certain diseases. These are often very applied in nature but can present challenges in how to model missing data.
