Ed Juszczak graduated in Applied Statistics from Sheffield City Polytechnic in 1992, and obtained a Masters degree (MSc) in Medical Statistics from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine a year later. He then spent 5 years in the Information & Statistics Division of the NHS in Scotland developing an expertise in the design and analysis of case control and cohort studies. In 1998 he joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, and as Senior Medical Statistician headed a small dedicated team of statisticians supporting clinical research, predominantly randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and teaching medical statistics to non-statisticians. Subsequently Ed joined the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit in September 2007 as Head of Trials, where he oversees a Clinical Trials Unit running a portfolio of typically around a dozen neonatal and maternal clinical trials at various stages of completion. He has considerable experience in the design, conduct, analysis and reporting of RCTs, with a particular interest in multi-arm trials and the use of statistics in the areas of neonatology, paediatrics, mental health and surgery. Ed sits on several data monitoring and trial steering committees and in 2007 was conferred the title 'University Research Lectureship' by the University of Oxford, followed in 2010 by the award of Chartered Scientist (CSci) by the Science Council.
More recently, Ed has become the representative for Clinical Trials Units on the National Institute for Health Research Medicines for Children Research Network Neonatal Clinical Study Group, an executive member of the National Reproductive Health Research Network Clinical Study Group in Fetal Medicine and a Steering Group member of the UKCRC network registered CTU Statisticians Working Group.
