Digital, Data and Technology: Disrupting Clinical Trials

Only 1 in 5,000 medicines in development make it to market, with a drug typically taking 12 years to develop from initial discovery to market. Estimates vary but the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry puts drug development at £1.15bn per drug. If we are to drive down the costs of medicines, we need to drive down the costs of clinical trials. Riddled with inefficiencies, the clinical trial process is ripe for disruption from patient recruitment to optimisation of data analysis. But how can data, digital and technology fit in a complex, lengthy and high risk process? To what extent are regulators open to new innovations? How is pharma investing in new approaches and technologies?

Join HealthTech Women UK, as part of the Data Science Festivalto learn, debate, network, and understand the role new technologies can play in future medicine development.
