The biostatistics team plays a vital role in any clinical study in planning the clinical trial design, sample size, randomization procedures, and statistical analysis. Thus, the biostatistician’s expertise is pivotal in ensuring a robust data analysis and making sure that the clinical study has sufficient power to answer the primary objective.
Biostatisticians are also crucial in interpreting the data, drawing conclusions, and handling statistical issues such as multiplicity. The biostatistics team documents the statistical methods in the Statistical Analysis Plan (SAP), which describes the analyses in detail including subgroup analyses, how missing data is handled, and how the data will be presented in the final study report.
