Quintiles Emerging Biopharma Webinar: Designing Smarter, More Predictable Clinical Trials, Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 13, 2015) - Join an expert panel from Quintiles as they discuss Model-based drug development and practices that will help emerging biopharma companies design smarter trials to put their products on a more predictable path to success. The live broadcast takes place on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 10am EDT (2pm GMT).

For biotech companies, success can be transformational. But the path is often paved with unique challenges, including constrained budgets and limited internal resources.

For emerging biopharma companies, the path to success can be paved with significant and sometimes unforeseen challenges that may not be present for large pharma.

Combine these unique challenges in a risk-averse regulatory and financial environment -- where stakeholders have an increased focus on evidence and investment viability -- and it becomes essential for emerging biopharma companies to do everything they can to get it right the first time.

Key Topics include:

  • Mitigating risk and achieving more predictable outcomes in early development - How PK/PD modeling and simulation can be used to develop scenarios that allow for more informed benefit / risk / value assessments
  • Achieving optimal trial design by balancing risk, time, and cost - Combine various data sources, real-world evidence, and technology to build in predictability and prototype cost and time scenarios
  • Generating predictability for stakeholders - Utilize scenario-driven strategies to make the most effective use of funds, develop more informed go/no-go decisions, and achieve a more robust proof of concept

The speakers from Quintiles include Seth Berry, Director of Clinical Pharmacokinetic / Pharmacodynamic Modeling and Simulation, Laura Marquis, Vice President and Global Head of Emerging Biopharma, and Cara Willoughby, Senior Director and Infosario Design Delivery Lead. The 45 minute presentation will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A session.
