Therapeutic Area : Hematology, Cell Therapy, ICF(Immunology/Cardiovacular/Fibrosis), Medical and Market Access
Prerequisites : A Ph.D. candidate or MSc candidate in Statistics. Experience in R (preferred) and/or SAS

Description of the project and work required (including references)

Pediatric studies and small sample size

In recent times, the needs for new drugs to be tested within the pediatric setting has increased to now being an integral requirement of the regulatory process, with legislation surrounding pediatric drug testing undergoing many changes in recent time; more recently the FDA Reauthorization Act (FDARA 504), enacted August 2018 and took effect August 2020. The new ICH E11 (R1) outlines the need for developing “additional statistical and pharmacokinetic methods” that integrate and leverage existing knowledge, as well as extrapolation of information from other populations (adults or pediatric subgroups).

Location: Boudry, Switzerland / Uxbridge, UK.
Internship period: According to the School/University rules.

Full-time internships are available and will last 4 to 6 months according to the university/school requirements and the study project.

Student Internship in biostatistics

Functional area : Biostatistics
Therapeutic Area : Cell Therapy
Prerequisites : A Ph.D. candidate or MSc candidate in Statistics. Experience in R (preferred) and/or SAS

Project description and work required (including references)

Late stage CAR T-cell trials often allow subject to switch treatment, usually from the control group to experimental group, when specific conditions are met. This is implemented in the trial design to safeguard the ethical principles of providing the best care for patients. However, the presence of treatment switching creates technical difficulties in estimate the true effectiveness of the experimental drug when long-term time-to-event endpoints are used – in fact, standard methods (i.e. ITT or the per-protocol approaches) would likely underestimate the experimental treatment effectiveness (i.e. loss in power). For this reason, more complex methodologies have been proposed to adjust for treatment switching1. These are the marginal structural models (MDS) using inverse probability of censoring weights (IPCW), the two- stage adjustment and the Rank preserving structural failure time models (RPSFTM) using g-estimation.

Full-time internships are available and will last 4 to 6 months according to the university/school requirements and the study project. Part-time internship is possible when the student should continue to attend some courses during the internship period.
