Dr. Gregory Pond
Cancer clinical trials have evolved rapidly in recent years as investigators integrate an expanding body of knowledge into the design and analysis of clinical trials. Coupled with an increased importance on efficiency and availability of large data warehouses, there is an even greater need for identifying and using appropriate statistical methodologies. The focus of Dr. Gregory Pond’s research interests is in the statistical methodologies and analysis of cancer clinical trials, with an aim to facilitate the translation of scientific discoveries into the clinic.
