Laboratory studies

Experimental laboratory studies are vital to the translational research pathway. Many scientists have limited access to statistical support and the partnership required between statisticians and scientists to undertake high quality research is often lacking.

As a group we want to build communication between scientists and statisticians. We are currently developing a discussion framework (RIPOSTE) which aims to facilitate discussion between the two disciplines at the design of a study.

RIPOSTE framework

The term ‘laboratory studies’ is imprecise and covers a disparate range of studies. We aim to refine what we mean by the term ‘laboratory studies’.
