Sophisticated biostatistics for complex clinical research

The role of biostatisticians in clinical research is to contribute to trial design, by calculating sample size for example, and to help draw correct conclusions from the data, discriminating important information from noise. They are instrumental in the translation of a practical problem into a statistical model, and the translation of the result into practice.

New grant to study the role of immune cells in lung regeneration

Posted 12/11/2018

Many congratulations to Prof Ling-Pei Ho, who was awarded £872K to study an exciting new research avenue in lung fibrosis.  Prof Ho will lead a network of collaborators from King's College London, Newcastle and the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge in this endeavour. The programme will take advantage of advanced technologies such as single cell RNA sequencing, mass cytometry, and gene editing. The team aims to build a detailed view of how the immune system impacts on the regeneration potential of the lungs following injury.

Trends in the Incidence and Recurrence of Inpatient-Treated Spontaneous Pneumothorax, 1968-2016

Trends in the Incidence and Recurrence of Inpatient-Treated Spontaneous Pneumothorax, 1968-2016

Posted 11/10/2018

Pneumothorax is a common condition which can affect anyone where air leaks from the lung and causes lung collapse. Researchers from the Clinical Trials Support Unit and Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit have conducted the world’s largest ever analysis of pneumothorax (over 170,000 cases) using hospital records, and demonstrated that this condition is increasing. The reasons for this are not clear, but provide important data on trends in this disease, and highlight the need for further research in to treatment and prevention
