Industry leaders speak to the challenges and innovations in Oncology clinical trials

Oncology is leading the precision medicine revolution, as clinical researchers identify biomarkers to target patient subsets with more effective treatments. Yet there remains a scarcity of available patients for targeted therapy trials, and capturing, standardizing and analyzing app, sensor, imaging and genomic data from disparate systems is often unreliable.

Hear from special guest speakers Reinhard Von Roemeling, Board Certified Oncologist and former SVP of Global Oncology at Merck KGaA, Robert Ford, M.D. Founder and Principal at Clinical Trials Imaging Consulting, LLC., Michele Becci, VP of Industry Strategy at Medidata, and Jason Mezey, PhD Statistical Geneticist and Cornell University Professor, and discover how increasingly sophisticated technology with advanced analytics is helping clinical investigators and trial leaders overcome these challenges, and learn how a data-driven approach is a catalyst for:
    •  Optimal study design that minimizes patient burden & improves enrollment
    •  Improved site selection, enrollment, and retention with multivariate models
    •  Unified Study Conduct that streamlines trial operations and data capture
    •  Ensure real-world impact of new medicines and faster approvals
