Trials on the Other Side of the Curve: Drawing from the COVID-19 Experience to Define a New Future

The COVID-19 pandemic has created urgency for clinical trials to modernize and transform.  As the pandemic emerged, research teams scrambled to continue to support patients in need of access to investigational new medicines.  As we emerge from the pandemic, how do we take the best of the change and embed it to become the “new normal”?  How will clinical research in 2021 and beyond be faster and smarter as we get to the other side of the curve?

For over 20 years he has been leading the transformation of clinical trials, pioneering new approaches to bring research closer to patients and accelerate new cures with leading-edge technology.

KILL THE COMPANY: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution

Winning innovators embrace change—do you? What holds you back from better innovating, every day? In too many organizations, we're stuck in the land of status quo.
