Current Challenge: Platform trial designs

It is known that sometimes at the design stage of a clinical trial, simulations are conducted to better understand the operating characteristics of the design. Based on a simulated data set, the challenge is to visualise characteristics of the design to answer questions such as

  • How can we best show the effect of sample size on the power/type 1 error?
  • What is the relationship between number of cohorts, cohort inclusion rate and power?
  • How can we investigate the effectiveness of early stopping for futility?
  • Can you find other interesting patterns in the data?
