Professor Susan Todd

Job Title:

Professor of Medical Statistics


  • Department Director of Impact
  • Research Division Impact Lead: Mathematics & Statistics
  • Department Management Group

Areas of Interest:

  • Adaptive designs
  • Group sequential clinical trials
  • Epidemiology

My research areas of interest are adaptive designs and group sequential clinical trials. Recent work has considered methodology for novel study design and analysis in these areas, in particular phase II/III clinical trials involving treatment selection and multiple endpoints of interest.

      Collaborative Research

      In conjunction with colleagues at Warwick Medical School and University of Goettingen, Germany, we have undertaken projects on "Using Surrogate Endpoints for Decision-Making in Adaptive Seamless Designs" and "Adaptive seamless phase II/III designs - how should we interpret the results?". In collaboration with colleagues in Food and Nutritional Sciences here at the University I have been involved in several projects looking at "The effects of the substitution of dietary SFA with n-6 PUFA and MUFA on vascular function", "Influence of eNOS genotype on the vascular response to fish oil", "Immunomodulatory effects of pre- and pro-biotics" and "Reducing saturated fatty acids in the food chain through alteration of milk fat consumption".


      I have given seminars on my research to statisticians in numerous leading pharmaceutical companies and at conferences, and have been involved in the design and analysis of more than ten pharmaceutical sequential clinical studies. I have been a member of Data and Safety Monitoring Boards for international trials in cancer, intensive care medicine, hepatitis, heart disease and bone disorders in both the public and private sector.
