We are excited to welcome Dr. Dionne Price for a (virtual) visit with our department!

Dr. Price is the new President of the American Statistical Association (ASA), and Deputy Director, Office of Biostatistics at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) where she has worked for 21 years (Office of Translational Sciences, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research).  She is a mathematical statistician with research interests in the design and analysis of clinical trials, and she leads cross-cutting, collaborative efforts across FDA to advance and facilitate the use of complex innovative trial designs (CID) in pharmaceutical drug development.  CID may include the use of adaptive, Bayesian, and other novel statistical approaches to advance drug development and inform regulatory decision-making (often where traditional clinical trial methodology may not be feasible such as in rare disease or some pediatric indications), and Dr. Price has been involved in the oversight of the FDA’s recent CID pilot program.  Dr. Price’s effective communication, technical expertise, and keen understanding of regulatory policy have resulted in her representing the FDA on novel statistical issues both domestically and internationally.  We are thrilled to host Dr. Price and are looking forward to her visit!

All department members are welcome.
