Statistical Analyst

IDDI (International Drug Development Institute), founded in 1991, is a highly recognized Biostatistical and eClinical data services provider in the field of clinical research, providing agile clinical trials services for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device/diagnostic companies. Together, we want to achieve one objective: support our clients to accelerate the delivery of their drugs and improve people’s health. 

For 30 years, IDDI has successfully supported 1200+ clinical trials for 330+ pharmaceutical companies and biotech companies, as well as academic cooperative groups and CROs worldwide. 

Thanks to a scientifically driven culture and close collaboration with KOLs, IDDI also has a fruitful history of Research and Development projects and more than 15% of IDDI’s projects are academic studies. One of these R&D projects has led to the foundation of CluePoints, now leader in the field of data quality assessment in clinical trials.

Today, IDDI is proud to contribute to 4 significant research projects, including the BENEFIT project (Biostatistical Estimation of Net Effects for Individualization of Therapy) for which we are looking for an experienced and dynamic Statistical Analyst who will support its success!

With the Benefit project, IDDI focuses on an innovative solution dedicated to personalized medicine based on a novel statistical method called GPC (Generalized Pairwise Comparisons) – See M Buyse, Generalized pairwise comparisons of prioritized outcomes in the two-sample problem, Statistics in medicine, 2010, 29 3245–3257DOI: 10.1002/sim.3923.

While classical statistical design and analysis of clinical trials are based on a sole primary endpoint; the GPC method allows studying the combined multidimensional impact of several endpoints thereby maximizing statistical power and limiting the trial sample size. The flexibility of GPC allows involving patients and clinicians in the analysis and place patients at the center of the therapeutic decision. This is illustrated in this video:

GPC will lead to application dedicated to industry statisticians, clinicians, and ultimately patients, allowing the analysis of randomized clinical trials studies through an innovative approach permitting advanced Benefit-Risks assessments.

To reinforce our team and support one of our innovative projects in Research & Development, we are actively looking for a Statistical Analyst for Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve (hybrid office/ homeworking).
