Get study design assistance

Information:

  • Once you have educated yourself, developed and fine-tuned your hypothesis, performed your literature review, decided on endpoints, ensured that you have the patient population you will need to successfully run your study, decided on incentives, engaged colleagues and collaborators, created a team and identified a mentor, it is now time to solidify your study design.
  • Again, consulting with your team and mentor as well as someone with biostatistical expertise is a very important piece of this process.
