ASDa staff and recent MSc graduate Jeff Bone developed and executed the detailed statistical analysis plan for a recently reported study about the controversial “liberation therapy”, finding no significant impact of the therapy. This work adds to the many ways the Applied Statistics and Data Science group, in collaboration with UBC Statistics Department members, have contributed to medical research into this debilitating disease.
