Adaptive Designs and Multiple Testing Procedures

Joint Working Group (Section) of the ROeS and the German Region of the IBS



The working group has the aim to promote the development and application of biostatistical

procedures in the fields of multiple testing and group adaptive designs.

The working group organises an annual workshop which offers presentations on

the state of the art research on adaptive designs and multiple testing

procedures and related fields, but also showcases of the practical implementation of these methods.

Adaptive designs for clinical trials in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic

The working group organized the formation of expert panels to elaborate of the challenges and opportunities of adaptive designs for clinical trials in the pandemic setting. Two papers originated from these activities: (i) a paper on Efficient adaptive designs for clinical trials of interventions for COVID-19, (ii) a paper Clinical trials impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic: Adaptive designs to the rescue?
