Back in January 2017, Professor Patrick Royston was awarded the Stata Journal Editors’ Prize 2016, for his significant contributions to Stata and the Stata community over the last 25 years, and for three papers he published in the Stata Journal during the previous two years. Today, Patrick will officially receive his award at 2017 London Stata Users Group meeting in London.
To commemorate this occasion, we have interviewed Patrick for the first podcast in our new series 'MRCCTU: The Ideas Behind the Trials’. The interview explores Patrick's career in more depth, and provides an insight into his work with Stata, including fractional polynomials, and survival analysis “beyond the Cox model”. There is also some excellent advice for younger statisticians just starting out in the field. Click the link below to listen to the podcast.
