Following up on the 60 Minutes segment on the Duke Clinical Trials Saga, here’s a video of Keith Baggerly giving talk about his and Kevin Coombes’ investigation of the data and the methods. Thanks to Andrew J. for the link.
About us: We are three biostatistics professors (Jeff Leek, Roger Peng, and Rafa Irizarry) who are fired up about the new era where data are abundant and statisticians are scientists.
About this blog: We’ll be posting ideas we find interesting, contributing to discussion of science/popular writing, linking to articles that inspire us, and sharing advice with up-and-coming statisticians.
Why “Simply Statistics”: We needed a title. Plus, we like the idea of using simple statistics to solve real, important problems. We aren’t fans of unnecessary complication - that just leads to lies, damn lies and something else.
