WEBINAR: UNPACKING CLINICAL TRIAL INNOVATION: SEPARATING HYPE FROM HEALTH
11:00AM – Noon Eastern Time US
Speaker: Craig Lipset, Head of Clinical Innovation, Global Product Development
Every week there are new and exciting opportunities in the headlines – mobile and sensors, 3D printing, innovative monitoring strategies, cross-industry collaborations, the list can seem endless and overwhelming. For Clinical Trials Day 2016, Craig will explore many of these signals and explore ways to separate the hype from approaches closer to bringing true impact to the health of clinical trials and improve our ability to develop new medicines for patients.
WEBINAR: NEW IDEAS IN PRECISION MEDICINE AND CLINICAL TRIALS
1:00 – 2:00PM Eastern Time US
Speakers: Robert Huckman, Albert J. Weatherhead III, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and Faculty Chair of the HBS Health Care Initiative
In January 2016, the Health Care Initiative at Harvard Business School launched the Precision Trials Challenge, an online competition to generate ideas on how to bring precision therapies and diagnostics to market faster by reinventing the clinical trials process. For Clinical Trials Day, Professor Huckman will announce and introduce the challenge winner and two runners-up, moderate a round table discussion about their ideas and address important precision trials issues, such as identifying the “right” patients for enrollment, off label uses of drugs, N-of-1 approval, big data, and data sharing.
