As the Life Sciences industry looks to reinvent itself in the wake of slowing industry growth and other macroeconomic stresses, the move to transform fixed costs to variable costs has become common place. It's a great strategy - but how do you execute on that strategy?
The clinical trial is one of the most important and complex areas where we see this trend emerging. The pain point is so acute, and the stakes so high, that we are encouraged to see this component of the Life Sciences industry leading the way in fostering innovation, specifically the Virtual Clinical Trial.
A number of our partners have expressed that the Virtual Clinical Trial is one of the hottest topics in the industry today, and that was reinforced at this year's Partnership in Clinical Trials event. At that show, the buzz was focused almost solely on Virtual Clinical Trials. Also at that show, ProtonMedia announced a strategic relationship with one of the leaders in the CRO space - PPD.
In addition to PPD, we have also been participating in the Pan-Asian Clinical Trials Association (PACRA) with some very positive results. And finally, Microsoft is providing a great set of solutions to support this industry change.
Join us, for an in-person event, at the Microsoft Technology Center in Malvern, PA to discuss and explore these trends. The session is titled, "Innovation in Clinical Trials" and will be held on December 7 from 10am-12pm EST. with lunch immediately following.
The session will feature several life sciences executives, including:
- Les Jordan, CTO - Microsoft Life Sciences
- Mike Wilkinson, CIO - PPD
- Steven Bukvic, Executive Director - Merck MPI
- Lisa Clune, CEO - Kaplan EduNeering
- Sam Batterman, Technology Strategist - Microsoft Life Sciences
- Ron Burns, CEO - ProtonMedia
