EmpiriStat President Running for SCT Board

Dr. Nicole C. Close, founder and president of EmpiriStat, has been nominated by her peers for a three-year position on the Society for Clinical Trials (SCT) Board of Directors.  In hoping to join this prestigious Board, Dr. Close would continue her long-established record of leadership in the world of Clinical Biostatistics and work to educate and mentor fellow Biostatisticians as well as guiding this Society into the next decade.

Created in 1978, SCT is an international organization dedicated to the development and dissemination of knowledge about the design, conduct, and analysis of government and industry-sponsored clinical trials and related health care research methodologies.

Through her peer respected educational seminars, Dr. Close has always urged the clinical research community to: learn and use statistical terminology appropriately; appreciate statistical considerations when planning, designing, and analyzing a clinical trial; learn statistical concepts of variability, bias, estimation, and hypothesis testing; and learn why and how to engage a statistician when conducting clinical research.  Her diverse experience and peer respect will enable Dr. Close to assist the Board with current objectives and chart a successful course for the next 30 years of the Society.

Anyone interested in joining SCT or simply to find out more, is encouraged to review their website (
