Linking independent statisticians and investigators of clinical trials

Identifying independent statisticians to be part of a Trial Steering Committee (TSC) or Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) is often challenging. It is useful for statisticians to be involved in these roles to facilitate their professional development.

A mailing list has been created to link statisticians and investigators of clinical trials to fulfil these roles. JISC provides these email discussion lists for the UK Educations and Research communities.


Why join?

For statisticians: opportunities for continuing professional development and connecting with other statisticians

For investigators: easy connection to large field of experienced statisticians, opportunity to advertise – free of charge – to a wide audience of professionals and choose the most suitable statistician for the role.
