A practising surgeon based in Los Angeles was looking for a statistician to help him design a clinical trial. The non-randomized study involved the evaluation of a surgical treatment on 200 patients, divided into two age groups. He was looking for a specialist to help him analyze the effectiveness of the treatment in each group and optimize the design.
The client posted his job on Kolabtree and received two bids within a week from clinical trials experts. He chose to work with Dr. Nimita Limaye, a clinical trials and drug development expert. Nimita also took the help of a senior biostatistician who had worked on 50 such studies. The client and expert worked together and the project was successfully completed in 2 weeks.
