challenges with using decentralized trials you will hear from 2 speakers
who will focus on some real case studies where DCTs have been used in
practice. The first of these will focus on the use of digital endpoints and
provide examples of successfully using digital endpoints in clinical trials
together with flagging up some areas where further statistical work is
required. The second of these presentations will introduce a framework to
guide teams on the scientific issues related to the use of DCTs,
particularly in later phases of clinical development. Opportunities,
assumptions and points to consider will be illustrated with examples of
decentralized trials. The webinar will finish with a panel discussion where
we welcome questions from all statistical aspects of the use of DCTs in
clinical development.

MEB Science Day 2022

Datum: 17 February 2022
Tijd: 13:00 - 17:00
Locatie: Virtueel

Academia play a key role in drug discovery and development. Indeed, many important advances in clinical practice, including innovative medicines, have their roots in academia. Nevertheless, bringing a drug to the market has proven to be challenging and demanding for academic drug researchers. These challenges have been attributed in part to lacking knowledge of regulatory requirements and skills in navigating the regulatory system. The MEB tries to reach out to academic drug developers, e.g., through its active involvement in training of future Dutch clinical pharmacologists, teaching activities and internships of master students of various Dutch universities, and through its participation in the EU funded Coordination and Support Action on Strengthening Training of Academia in Regulatory Science (CSA STARS; https://www.csa-stars.eu/). The MEB recognizes the value of further advancing the dialogue among academia, regulatory authorities and other stakeholders, such as patient and health-care professional representatives, and health-technology assessment bodies. Building up innovation platforms and experience-sharing networks will foster the timely exchange of information between main players and will facilitate the implementation of academic research findings in clinical practice. This year, the MEB Regulatory Science Day will focus on the current landscape of academic drug development and will address the questions on how to ensure the maximum impact of academic research and its “regulatory readiness”. Through discussions and presentations from invited speakers, we will identify what regulatory-related barriers hamper the translation of novel products or new treatment paradigms initiated in academia, discuss what initiatives have been put in place to close the gap between research and regulation, and reflect on how to make the road of academic drug development, albeit challenging, a rewarding one.

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated flexibility in clinical trial conduct and accelerated changes in the clinical trial landscape. Moving forward, it will be important to leverage the use of innovative tools and approaches to trial design, conduct, and inspections. This event will build on the February 2020 GCP Symposium: Data Integrity in Global Clinical Trials – Tackling Challenging Topics in 2020. Presenters will provide regulatory perspectives on how maximizing our understanding and use of risk-based approaches can build resilience into clinical trials, allowing flexibility in the protocol and clinical trial conduct while still ensuring participant safety and reliable results. Presenters will discuss continuing developments in decentralized trials, use of real-world data and real-world evidence in regulatory decision making, and the importance of sponsor oversight. The event will also include sessions dedicated to the conduct of bioequivalence (BE) trials. Regulators will provide their perspectives on common issues and challenges in the conduct of the clinical and bioanalytical components of BE trials and provide important updates on guidance and inspection activities.

Locatie: Atlanta

Biobanking is increasingly recognized as intrinsic for accelerating the scientific journey. By fostering deep collaboration amongst a broad, inclusive community of thought leaders, we are able to strengthen our collective capability and create shared value. The challenges associated with providing sustainable, modern infrastructure will not be solved unless there is a concerted effort to integrate lessons learned into a robust ecosystem built on partnerships across multiple sectors. Partnerships must be broad, creative, expansive and committed to the collective impact. Such coalitions can be multi-sectorial and include leaders and stakeholders from diverse quarters representing academia, industry, and government, each of whom bring their own experiential knowledge and assets. Biobanks must provide scientists and the general community with globally-available tools to innovate, learn, and inspire. As the world grows ever more connected aided by the convergence of biology, data, digital systems and automated technologies, biobanking presents many new potential applications. From novel companion diagnostics, which can be used to diagnose and treat disease more effectively, to enhancing our understanding of environmental influences, biobanking is shaping the scientific journey in a new world. Hear experts share their stories behind Biobanking: Shaping the Scientific Journey, and help build a new understanding of the biobanking landscape to contribute to a strong vision for the future.
