author/source: SMi Group Ltd


SMi Group Reports: Its 8th annual conference on Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials will be held in London on the 18th - 19th April 2016.

In recent years, the use of adaptive design methods has become very popular due to its flexibility for identifying clinical benefits of the testing drug. Adaptive designs offer the potential to reduce timelines and patient exposure while maximising the probability for successful outcomes. However, along with these benefits come challenges: additional complexity, needs for advanced statistical models and increased operational demands.

SMi Group is proud to present its 8th Annual conference on Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials  taking place on 18th – 19th April in London, UK.

The event is designed to highlight an array of topics, including adaptive designs within the context of a development programme, Bayesian analysis in adaptive design, biomarker-driven trials, opportunities of adaptive enrichment designs in the era of precision medicine, and much more!

  • Bo Huang, Director of Biostatistics, Pfizer USA
  • Alex Sverdlov, Associate Director of Biostatistics, EMD Serono
  • Loïc Darchy, Head of Statistical Methodology Group, Sanofi R&D
