Jason Connor, founder of ConfluenceStat, LLC, is a clinical trialist and statistician with degrees in Biomedical Engineering (BS) and Statistics & Public Policy (PhD).
For 20 years he’s been incorporating these talents in designing and analyzing innovative Bayesian and adaptive clinical trials, first at Cleveland Clinic then at Berry Consultants. His work has included collaboration with professionals in academia and government as well as from the pharmaceutical, biotech, and the medical device industries.
Dr. Connor spent 11 years collaborating in the design of over 200 Bayesian adaptive trials and platform trials, which provided him extensive experience with the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), and Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
He currently has appointments as Assistant Professor of Medical Education at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine (2008-present) and Visiting Professor each summer at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University (2010-present), teaching a week-long course in Bayesian Adaptive Designs.
Dr. Connor is currently on the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute’s (PCORI's) Clinical Trial Advisory Panel. While a statistician, he has developed an intense knowledge in numerous clinical areas such a gastroenterology, neurology, emergency medicine, cardiology, and others. He was named Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology in 2005 and served as an Associate Editor of the American Journal of Gastroenterology from 2003-2009. He has authored more than 85 articles in the statistical and medical literature.
Jason shares his office with his yellow Labrador Murphy. (That’s Murphy you hear snoring and/or barking during teleconferences). When he isn’t contributing to innovative clinical trials, he’s enjoying life with his wife Danielle and daughter Zoey, racing karts, or stopping pucks (on good nights) in rec league ice hockey.
