Project: SNAP - Staphylococcus aureus Network Adaptive Platform Trial
We are developing a novel adaptive platform trial to optimise management of Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia. There are many elements involved in setting up such a platform trial, ranging from Bayesian statistical modelling, protocol development, streamlined consent processes and ethical considerations. We are looking for motivated individuals keen to learn about applying these novel methodologies to a key clinical infectious diseases syndrome.
The Tong group encompasses a multi-disciplinary group crossing bacterial and viral genomics, epidemiology, Indigenous health and clinical trials. We are committed to improving Indigenous health with partners in northern Australia, and developing capacity for conducting multi-centre clinical trials using novel methodologies. At the Doherty Institute, we collaborate extensively with the epidemiology and mathematical modelling groups, and the Doherty Applied Microbial Genomics team.
