Thursday, May 5, 2022 at 11am EDT | 8am PDT Optimizing clinical development plans requires trade-offs across competing factors. Join us for an expert panel discussion exploring how coupling innovative development strategies with analytical tools can drive better drug development decisions.
As competition in the biopharmaceutical industry increases, firms must make effective drug development trade-off decisions considering risk, timing and cost. This requires collaboration across functions, informed forecasts, and, ideally, comparison of multiple options.
Please join us for a webinar discussing these trade-offs and how companies can work in a cross-functional way to achieve effective scenario planning. Learn about the common dynamics that development teams need to evaluate, and how to build scenario comparisons to choose the best path forward. Hear from drug development experts about the different types of trade-offs in clinical development planning, and how to use real-world evidence and adaptive trial designs to supercharge decision-making. We will also showcase a technology platform for optimizing clinical development scenario planning.
