We are delighted to welcome Oliver Keene as one of three Editors-in-Chief of Pharmaceutical Statistics, the Journal of Applied Statistics in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Pharmaceutical Statistics is the official journal of PSI (Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry). Oliver joins existing editors Lisa LaVange and Kit Roes in this role.

Oliver studied mathematics at Cambridge University before completing an MSc in statistics at University College, London. He has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 25 years in all stages of new medicine development, from the pre-clinical area through to support for reimbursement. He has been involved in multiple therapeutic areas, including respiratory, anti-virals, arthritis and cardiovascular. Oliver was chair of the PSI regulatory committee for five years. Oliver has published widely on applications of statistics to clinical trials including papers on ITT analysis and analysis of recurrent event data.

Oliver supports the Leicester City football team and the Leicester Tigers rugby team, both of which are generally a source of disappointment to him. Oliver has run a number of marathons and last year finally achieved his ambition of completing one in under 4 hours.

Oliver’s goals as editor are to attempt to maintain the high standards set by his predecessors and to encourage submission of papers that are accessible and relevant to statisticians struggling with the many challenges of development of new medicines.
