UNC Center for Innovative Clinical Trials

The UNC Center for Innovative Clinical Trials at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health conducts methodological, applied and interdisciplinary research on the design and analysis of clinical trials. Building on UNC’s reputation and excellence in translating research to practice, the Center seeks to advance statistical science in clinical trials and quickly move it forward into clinical and statistical practice in existing and future studies.

The Center’s interdisciplinary focus brings together faculty from several UNC departments and additional collaborators from industry, who will engage jointly in both methodological and applied research in clinical trials design, analysis and evaluation. Dr. Joseph G. Ibrahim, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Director of the Biostatistics Core at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, provides leadership for the Center.

With some of the world’s top methodological researchers in clinical trials and related areas on its team, this Center will soon become a global leader in statistical methods research used in clinical trials and in their applications and implementation in actual studies.
