The objective of the course is to introduce students to the various design and statistical analysis issues in biomedical research. This is intended as a survey course covering a wide variety of topics in clinical trials, bioequivalence trials, toxicological experiments, and epidemiological studies. Many of these topics do not appear in other statistics courses, although a few topics are covered in greater depth in more advanced statistics courses. Computations are performed via the SAS statistical software package. Evaluation methods include four to five homework assignments, an in-class mid-semester examination and an in-class final examination.
