Our research

Our research and activities concern the biostatistical analyses of experimental data and clinical data Those include among others the following fields:
– Statistical methods linked to small sample sizes which are essential in the frame of experimental designs in fundamental research
– Statistical designs in biomedical and clinical research
– Epidemiological analyses of data
– Meta-analyses
– Estimation of optimal samples sizes to be determined in experimental and clinical studies.
– Bayesian statistics focused on biomedical and clinical applications
– Clinical trials
In the frame of clinical trials, we are consultant for the FAMHP (Belgium Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products) and expert for EMEA ( European Medicines Agency) . We are members of the Agency’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) which is responsible for conducting the assessment of a human medicine for which an EU-wide marketing authorisation is sought. As part of this scientific evaluation work, we participate in the reviewing of the clinical-trial data included in the applications.
