Who are our clients?

Many top marketing research,  management consulting and pharmceutical firms received our training and use our software. Several consult with us on their more challenging applications.

“Jay has made an outstanding contribution to the methodological debate around the modelling of survey data. His thought provoking work on segmentation, choice and predictive modelling continues to shape the state of the art of statistical consulting and has delighted many of our clients for whom we have put this into practice.”        Gary Bennett, Managing Director, Logit Research, U.K.

Some of our recently completed consulting and onsite training projects include the following:

1. Consulting Psychology Press (CPP)

Dr. Magidson used latent class modeling to develop the latest version of the Myers-Briggs® Personality Type Indicator (MBTI®).

“Statistically awesome and innovative! We worked with Statistical Innovations on a long term, global, data analysis project using latent class analysis through Latent GOLD. Over the course of several years of work, we found Jay to be responsive and patient, and he provided excellent guidance and support to help us understand the results, responding to our direction, and arriving at a very satisfactory result.” Rich Thompson Ph.D., Divisional Director, CPP, Inc.

2. Genentech

Dr. Magidson trained Genentech statisticians in the use of Latent Class Modeling in cancer research, and worked with other leading cancer researchers resulting in several important publications:

  • “A whole-blood RNA transcript-based prognostic model in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer: a prospective study”. The Lancet Oncology, Volume 13, No. 11, p1105–1113, November 2012 (with R. Ross, M. Galsky, H. Scher, K. Wassmann, G. Lee, L. Katz, S. Subudhi, A. Anand, M. Fleisher, P. Kantoff, W. Oh).
  • “Long-term survivor characteristics in HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer from registHER”. British Journal of Cancer, 2014 (with D A Yardley, D Tripathy, A M Brufsky, H S Rugo, P A Kaufman, M Mayer, B Yoo, C Quah and M Ulcickas Yood).
  • “Blood mRNA signature to predict survival in patients with metastatic melanoma treated with tremelimumab”. Clinical Cancer Research Journal, Volume 20, No 24, December 15, 2014 (with Yvonne M. Saenger, Bobby Chi-Hung Liaw, Ellen de Moll, Sara Harcharik, Yichun Fu, Karl Wassmann, William K. Oh, David Fisher, Philip Friedlander).
  • “Correlated Component Regression: Re-thinking Regression in the Presence of Near Collinearity”. Chapter in 2013 Springer Verlag book series: “New perspectives in Partial Least Squares and Related Methods”.

3. Gene News:

“During the past 9 years I have worked with Dr. Magidson on the development of diagnostics for the early detection of cancer, prognosis of survival and response to cancer treatments. We have found latent class modeling to be ideal for development of robust models to identify responders versus non-responders to drug therapy, for example. Jay’s statistical models consistently validated in independent clinical trials! This result stands out as unique in the pharmaceutical industry. I highly recommend Statistical Innovations for the depth of their knowledge and their ability to work well in meeting the demanding needs of drug developers.” Karl Wassmann, V.P. of Business Development, Gene News
