DATA AND STATISTICAL SCIENCES INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW
Envision spending your summer working with energetic colleagues and inspirational leaders, all while gaining world-class experience in one of the most dynamic organizations in the pharmaceutical industry. This is a reality for AbbVie's Experiential Interns.
Data and Statistical Sciences (DSS), is revolutionizing the drug development landscape through strategic leadership and operational excellence. The DSS team pioneers the generation and leverages scientific evidence to provide new treatments that make remarkable impact for patients. Statistical sciences provides statistics support for all phases of clinical development as well as global medical affairs.
The DSS is group is seeking two interns. The two unique projects are detailed below:
Data Modeling
The Intern will work on adaptive designs that may improve the efficiency of drug development and accelerate the approval of new treatments, especially in oncology trials. The adaptive seamless design combining Phases II and III into a single trial has shown a growing interest. Meanwhile, the challenges include but are not limited to dose selection or control arm selection using short-term endpoint or long-term unmatured endpoint, combining of samples/events in Phases II and III stages, trial duration or sample size assessment, and power evaluation. The Intern will help build the theoretical foundation of modeling relationships among clinical endpoints via copula and close the gap between theory and application of parameter estimation from the possibly unmatured Phase II data via bootstrap.
Dose Selection
FDA Project Optimus emphasizes dose selection in oncology drug development and encourages trials that evaluate at least two doses in a randomized manner. To have two or more doses of the experimental drug and build dose selection into part of the pivotal trials and having interim looks to drop dose(s) gradually becomes a popular approach. There are a few versions of multi-arm multi-stage model can be use in this type of design. However, among these MAMS models, to choose a more efficient one and in the meantime, decide the number and timing of the stages (interim looks) for dose selection is essential. The intern will work on comparing stage-wise MAMS and cumulative MAMS approaches, evaluate the impact of the number and timing of the interim looks, and assess how to use a short-term endpoint to choose doses and use a long-term endpoint as the primary endpoint in this MAMS setting. The work will have a broad impact across oncology molecule teams. It can potentially help projects increase the power, save sample size, reduce the duration of clinical trials, and decrease cost.
KEY RESPONSIBILITIES COULD INCLUDE:
Perform literature review
Conduct research on one or more statistical topics
