In the face of increasingly complex data, pressures to get therapies to market as rapidly as possible, desire to decrease patient burden, COVID-19-created obstacles, and other challenges, clinical research professionals are under a great deal of pressure. Any technology or tools that empower them to accomplish their work more effectively, efficiently, and ethically can be a huge help.
In Outsourcing-Pharma’s April 6 webinar, Clinical Development Innovations, we’ll be sharing insightful information from a trio of leading experts, each offering perspective from a different facet of clinical research. Register for the event, then join us at 10 am CST (5 pm CET) to hear about innovations and ideas that stand to elevate the industry.
Jean-Enno Charton, director of bioethics and digital ethics, Merck
Earlier this year, Merck announced the formation of its Digital Ethics Advisory Panel. Intended to supplement the work of its Bioethics Advisory Panel, which offers guidance on bioethical questions. During his presentation, Charton will discuss the creation of the panel, its mission, and how addressing such questions is an important matter for clinical research.
Ignacio Fuentes, managing director, MIT Jameel Clinic
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other advanced technologies already are leading to rapid, dramatic advancements in the life sciences. The MIT Jameel Clinic is one of the noted institutions helping to develop and apply AI and ML technology to help advance drug discovery and development.
Nikhil Joshi, CEO, Clinical Trial Hero
Identifying, recruiting, and engaging patients stands among the most challenging, yet important, aspects of clinical research. Joshi will be telling us about the Clinical Trial Hero app, which uses smartphone technology to help patients connect with trials they could potentially enroll in, located near their homes.
