BENEFIT (Biostatistical Estimation of Net Effects for Individualization of Therapy) is joining the "data science" topic. Coordinated by IDDI, the project is aiming to develop a new statistical method (Generalised Pairwise Comparisons) and to create software for designing and analysing clinical trials using this innovative approach which will be of interest to all stakeholders, including patients. To successfully complete this 30-month project with a budget of €1.8 million, IDDI is collaborating with four other partners: Brystol-Myers Squibb, UCL (Institute of biostatistics and actuarial sciences), EORTC and the University Hospital of Lyon.
This project is set to start on 26 September.
