TL14: PhD, MS Statisticians – Roles and Responsibilities in the Pharmaceutical Industry
*Nfii Ndikintum, PharmaNet/i3 *Eshetu Tesfaye, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
In the Pharmaceutical, CRO industries and academic research centers distinctions are frequently made between the roles/responsibilities ascribed to a PhD and an MS Statistician. Is this distinction important? Are the skill-sets truly different? The purpose of this roundtable is to discuss this apparent dichotomy in roles/responsibilities and further discuss how regardless of academic credentials PhD and MS Statisticians are equally equipped with the right tools to successfully support clinical trials.
