Interview with David Kerr

Join us while we discuss these questions with David and learn more about the following points:

  • How did David get to this position as a biostatistician at a CRO?
  • How is it made sure that information from the DMC stays within the DMC?
  • What is David's most challenging and most exciting experience he had while working in a DMC setting?
  • When working on open-label trials, it is sometimes requested to “artificially” blind the date but have a DMC review the unblinded data. Has he come across these settings as well, and what’s the challenge he sees here?
