Highlights of the 2017 event

The 4th Annual Clinical Operations in Oncology Trials is back in 2017 on April 11-12 for what promises to be a fantastic event. This is the one and only oncology specific conference in the West Coast region for clinical operations professionals in pharma and biotech companies to come together and explore the latest issues, trends and strategies within the oncology trials world. Come hear oncology trial operation strategies from top-notch industrial leaders from Genentech, Gilead Sciences, Oncomed, Amgen, Abbvie and many more. Here is a peek to the program.

Here are three key topics that you do not want to miss out:

1. The competition in crowded oncology trials tremendous. The high competition makes patient recruitmenteven harder than it is already so. Delayed patient recruitment immediately affects the ability to test drugs’ effectiveness and clinical operation cost. Sameena Sharif, VP of Business Operations, Portfolio & Project Management at Astex Pharmaceticals will be speaking about finding the right patients to avoid timeline delays and speed up market launch.   

2. Patient-centric trials are everyone’s interest. But, can trials be truly patient-centric?  How much patients’ convenience can be considered to improve their participation in clinical trials? Deborah Collyar, President, Patient Advocates in Research (PAIR) and Graeme Currie, VP of Clinical Sciences and Operations, Dynavax Technologies will be leading this interesting panel discussion to explore the best way to reflect patient convenience and increase patient retention rate.

3. What is the future of the clinical trials? Can implementing mobile technology optimize oncology trials? Latika Kohli, Program Manager, Regulatory Affairs at Genentech will be exploring regulatory issues with operating clinical trials with mobile technology. Its potentials and limits will be interesting to listen to give a thought on clinical trials in the near future.
