Our customers (most often medical product or device clinical development teams) depend on us for high quality external controls created using sound statistical methodology and expertise in the justification and use of synthetic controls in a regulatory setting.  We often present our synthetic control arm work in clinical or statistical professional meetings or publications in scientific journals.  Collaborations with other researchers in academia, the pharmaceutical industry, or regulatory space are common. Our work is highly innovative with clear impact to patients.
