Albert gave a presentation titled "Optimising the Effectiveness of Your Trial Design" at the Informa Life Science's Inaugural "Improving Comparator Studies" conference that took place on 11-12 October 2011 in Basel. The talk was to raise the awareness of the role of statistician in the trial design process, as well as to introduce a few basic statistical concepts and terminology related to comparative clinical trial designs to non-statisticians. Usually such "statistics for non-statisticians" presentation would typically last at least an hour, so trying to squeeze all the information into a 40-minute slot has been a real challenge.
