As well as traditional statistical programming such as building data sets and creating tables, listings and figures, Dave found himself working on several special projects. “I didn’t come into the ranks through the typical career path, and I wasn’t content to simply analyze the data. I wanted to work with people from all over the industry, and I’d volunteer for anything to get out of the office. I worked with universities in Virginia and California on a fast-tracked critical care molecule and loved getting to know the CRAs in the field. I helped prepare and deliver CANDA systems to the FDA offices, and trained the reviewers in the use of the systems. I’ve always been lucky in that I love what I do.”
