Person OverviewI am currently jointly appointed at the BSU, as a Programme Leader Track, and at Newcastle University, as a Professor of Biostatistics. I began my research career at the BSU in 2006 as a PhD student, looking at multi-locus methods for genome-wide association studies, supervised by Prof Frank Dudbridge. Since then I progressed on to being a Research Statistician in 2009 and then a Senior Investigator Statistician in 2012, working on clinical trials methodology within the Design and Analysis of Randomised Trials research theme at BSU. I was appointed as a Programme Leader Track in November 2015.
BSU Research OverviewMy group's research focuses on statistical methods for next-generation clinical trials. This includes several areas of work that address the need for efficient clinical trials, both in academia and in the pharmaceutical industry. James Wason's personal pages Google Scholar page
