Professor Chris Metcalfe

Medical statistics and study design

I am the co-director, with Athene Lane, of the Bristol Randomised Trials Collaboration. I provide statistical expertise or supervision to a number of major research studies, including:

  • A study of training shop-keepers, aimed at reducing pesticide self-poisoning in Sri Lanka
  • The FITNET study, evaluating internet-based treatment for adolescents with chronic fatigue
  • The ROMIO study, comparing surgical techniques for oesophagectomy in the treatment of cancer

My research into statistical methods is opportunistic, addressing questions that arise during my diverse mix of applied work.
