- Understand and explain basic biostatistical concepts;
- Apply basic data management principles to create accurate data sets;
- Increase statistical literacy to improve understanding and critical review of the scientific literature;
- Describe key clinical trial design features with application to HIV vaccine trials;
- Understand fundamental statistical methods relevant to laboratory assay validation/qualification/optimisation.
This interactive workshop will provide an introduction to basic biostatistical concepts and statistical literacy,
basic data management, and key statistical considerations for the
design and analysis of clinical trials. Concepts will be motivated from
real-world examples in clinical and laboratory research on HIV vaccines
