Clinical trials have resisted real innovation, not because we couldn’t, but because we feared failure.

But pressure has built, floodgates have opened, and technology is transforming time-to-market, how we recruit and retain participants, and how we gather data. Regulators are embracing new methods. It’s time for new types of trial: democratized, patient-preferred, siteless and virtual.

The Digital Clinical Trials Stage at eyeforpharma will provide you with critical insights from leading pharma and technology providers to enable you to truly deliver on the promise of a patient-preferred trial. If you work for a biopharma company, you can apply to attend for FREE. Passes are limited apply today!

Carefully selected to cover every aspect of your Digital Clinical Trials strategy.
