Dr Suzie Cro Co-Head of Statistics
Suzie Cro is a Senior Lecturer in Medical Statistics and Clinical Trials, Co-Head of Statistics and Head of Trial Methodology (StatsCI) at Imperial Clinical Trials Unit (ICTU), School of Public Health.
She holds a personal NIHR advanced research fellowship which funds research to develop accessible statistical methods to analyse randomised controlled trials where patient outcomes have been affected by post‐randomisation events (e.g. treatment discontinuations or use of additional therapies) and to translate the ICH-E9-R1 addendum on estimands and sensitivity analysis in clinical trials into best statistical practice.
Suzie has a broad range of experience in the design and analysis of clinical trials and other interventional studies. She is a statistical co-investigator for FORWARDS1 - a Bayesian, adaptive, dose-escalation trial of baclofen in opioid dependence during methadone-maintenance treatment. Her statistical research interests include relevant accessible methods for:
- Handling missing data in randomised controlled trials
- Estimands and handling post-randomisation events, such as rescue medication and non-compliance in randomised controlled trials
- Transparency in the statistical analysis of clinical trials
