With early results of COVID-19 vaccine efficacy trials emerging, everyone is eager to understand and interpret their findings. David joined a panel that included Dr. Elizabeth M. Halloran and was moderated by Dr. Natalie Dean. The panel was part of the ongoing COPSS-NISS COVID-19 Data Science Webinar Series.
The discussion took a deep dive into the design and analysis of COVID-19 vaccine trials. Topics covered included the FDA’s guidance on COVID-19 efficacy trials, how to measure vaccine efficacy, an analysis of the published trial protocols, and the search for immune correlates of protection.
