Potential topics include emulating trials using routine data, developing personas using machine learning, trial monitoring, randomisation and blinding, visualisation of ophthalmic data, visualisation of drug harm profiles, PPI and statistical research, risk-benefit assessments, preparing a trial application with an adaptive design.
