How to Use Machine Learning in Clinical Research Right Now (March 17)

In machine learning, there are usually one of two distinct objectives: inference or prediction. In analyses involving clinical trial data and/or real-world data, a machine learning solution can be used by data scientists to detect patterns that conventional analysis and statistical methods cannot. Thus, a machine learning practitioner can help to infer which subgroups that respond, either particularly well or poorly, to a treatment. Similarly, machine learning algorithms can be used to predict a discrete or time-to-event outcome. When knowledge increases of subgroups of interest and on outcomes before they occur, the impact on patient care and clinical research is very powerful.   

In this Expert Insights webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Why data science and the use of machine learning is essential to pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device organizations
  • How to use machine learning to understand outcomes before they occur
  • Practical approaches for inference or prediction through machine learning
  • Metrics to evaluate the performance of predictions made
  • Possibilities for the future of machine learning in clinical research

Evolving Your FSP Relationships to Achieve the Maximum Return (April 21)

The drug development lifecycle can be predictably unpredictable, as mergers and acquisitions, interim results, DSMB decisions, reorganization, and evolving technology can all change the course of any plan in short order. Sponsors rely on the ability of Clinical Research Organization (CRO) partners to provide scalability and global reach in support of their core teams. FSP relationships however, can go beyond the ability to quickly ramp up and down. Explore with us, as we discuss how Sponsors who leverage FSP partners across multiple interdependent functional lines achieve the maximum benefit and the increasing importance of the way that new innovations and technology continue to change the way we work and the future skill sets needed.

In this Expert Insights webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How to achieve maximum benefit from FSP relationships
  • The need for diversification in the vendor portfolio
  • The potential for nimble adaptation and growth in long-term FSP partnerships
  • Possibilities for investing and growing together with your FSP partner
  • Implications and potential solutions for IR35 compliance
