3rd Annual Disruptive Innovations to Advance Clinical Trials

Sept. 19-20, 2013, The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, Mass.

Co-chaired by Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Novartis and Janssen, DPharm is the definitive event for innovators in the clinical trial space. The conference introduces novel and bold approaches to help attendees think radically different about how to do clinical trials.

Program highlights include the opening presentation on designing a non-traditional clinical trial followed by a case study on alternative clinical settings. The Keynote chat features Dr. Krishna Yeshwant from Google Ventures, who will give his perspective as a physician, programmer and entrepreneur on new approaches to disrupt drug development. Brand new to the program is a collaboration with MIT; they will share the results of a Hackathon on barriers to clinical trials. The conference also has special guests covering disruptive innovation from both Bloomberg Business Week and the Discovery Channel.

The DPharm event is for anyone interested in innovative approaches to changing the pace of clinical trials. PDMA members get a 25% discount with code "PDMA." To register and for more information, click here.
