Barry Traxler, Global Product Statistician, AstraZeneca, Wilmington, DE, USA. - "I believe the final product will hold up to FDA scrutiny very well" ...... "As you are leaving us, the best development suggestion that I can offer is that you might want to consider a consulting position."

Joel Raichlen, AstraZeneca Senior Medical Director. - "I would particularly commend his overall approach to the statistical analysis which I understand is innovative because of the unusual nature of the data."

Gregory Evans, Assistant Professor, Department of BioStatistical Sciences, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA. - "It is highly unusual and very reassuring to have a sponsor statistician so deeply involved in the analysis."

I am Dr Mike Palmer, director of N-Zero-1 Ltd, based in Wilmslow, Cheshire, UK. I gained my Ph.D. at Manchester University while I was Head of Medical Statistics at the world famous Christie Hospital, a major cancer treatment centre in the UK. Then during 23 years at AstraZeneca I had a number of roles as Team Leader, Principal Statistician and Statistical Scientist during which I gained particular experience in lipid metabolism, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, venous occlusion plethysmography, ultrasound measurement of carotid intima-media-thickness, and oncology (mainly, breast, prostate, head and neck, larynx, pediatrics, and radiotherapy).

I am now retired and want to fulfill my ambition of running my own business offering a statistical service to companies and institutions in pharmaceuticals, medical research and health-care.

One of my particular skills is teaching statistics to non-statisticians, including physicians. This was acquired over many years, starting at the Christie Hospital in Manchester, UK, leading to an appointment as Senior Examiner in Medical Statistics for the Royal College of Radiologists. I strongly believe statistics is not a "difficult" subject, and I am passionate about communicating statistical concepts and statistical results clearly and concisely.

I am Honorary Senior Research Fellow at Keele University, UK.
