Keynote fireside chat - Embrace the future: innovation at the speed of science

The ongoing pandemic has resulted in the compression of often decades-long digital transformation roadmaps in the way clinical trials are planned and conducted. This immediate impact is now being overshadowed by the opportunities it presents to reimagine and reinvigorate studies. Drug development models and processes, artificial intelligence/machine learning, drug safety, decentralized trials, and direct-to-patient services are only some of the options being investigated and deployed.

The stage is set for those who can accelerate their digital transformation roadmaps and embrace innovative approaches to overcome adversity. Reaping significant benefits now – and in the future.
