About this book

This volume contains a selection of chapters base on papers presented at the Fourth Seattle Symposium in Biostatistics: Clinical Trials. The symposium was held in 2010 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine. It featured keynote lectures by David DeMets and Susan Ellenberg and 16 invited presentations by other prominent researchers. The papers contained in this volume encompass recent methodological advances in several important clinical trials research, such as biomarkers, meta-analyses, sequential and adaptive clinical trials, and various genetic bioinformatic techniques. This volume will be a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the field of clinical trials.
