New Science… New Economics… New Engagement... Setting A New Pace in Biopharma

New Science” is expected to represent 81% of biopharma’s growth, but increasingly complex, personalized medicines are straining an already stretched access and affordability ecosystem. For the first time, average net prices are expected to decrease 1-2%, and policy and regulatory reform looms on the horizon. Industry is at an inflection point, and success in this new economic environment requires thinking and engaging differently across the lifecycle—from how teams come together to assess asset candidates and evidence generation strategies early in development; to how asset teams are tooled and upskilled; through to innovative access, pricing, and distribution strategies for mature assets approaching LOE

Beyond Lip Service: Practical tools for advancing diversity in clinical research

Science 37

Diversity is a hot topic in clinical research. As an industry, we have a clear and moral imperative to create and grow health equity, from clinical studies to real-world outcomes. But among disadvantaged populations, opportunities to participate in clinical research have, historically, been limited. So how can we advance from merely making noise to truly making a difference? Join Ryan Pack, Global Head of Diversity in Clinical Trials 

– Science 37 and a roundtable of industry experts for a session that will explore:

    •  Why it is so crucial to improve diverse representation in clinical trials
    • How DCT (decentralized clinical trial) technology offers practical tools that can dramatically increase diversity among both patients and providers—and how best to deploy these tools
    • What success looks like in the real-world
