New paths to trial diversity
To get drug development done through COVID-19 lockdowns and social distancing, trial sponsors turned to new technology—from data management to patient monitoring—and decentralized procedures. Those same methods could potentially help biopharma bring real diversity to future clinical trials. But hurdles to these patient-centric trials still remain. How can drugmakers clear those obstacles and tap technology to make their trials look like the patient populations who’ll use the treatments being tested?

Why the foundations of Cellular Research Matter: High quality Cellular Data Holds the Key to Post COVID development of gene- and cell-therapies.
 This is the era of big data. We are witnessing the generation of vast amounts of data from cells using state-of-the-art analyzers, sequencers and other high throughput research devices. These data are resolved using sophisticated analytical tools powered by AI. These technological advances are expected to bring forth better insights and understanding of target diseases, as well as guide strategies for development of therapies. In spite of the staggering advances in technology, the most critical and often overlooked step in these studies is the quality of cell samples and associated cell sample preparations. This is often underlined by the quality of data in spite of the sophisticated analytical tools as best described by the adage- “garbage in- garbage out” The irony is reflected in the current usage of cell prep protocols and tools dating back to the 1970s. Curiox is poised to bring the much needed global revolution to advance cell preparation through standardization and automation; to unlock the power of the latest technology and their impact on the development of cell and gene therapies.

Panel: Digital-first launches — The new post-COVID landscape
As a result of the pandemic, many pharma and biotech companies could not launch products in the same manner as they had done previously with face-to-face interactions with HCPS.  Companies needed to adapt and launch their products completely digitally which created unique challenges but also new opportunities for the future.  We will look at what worked, what didn’t and discuss strategies for these types of launches going forward.

Collaboration, 2022 style
In 2020, the pandemic spurred drugmakers to band together to find solutions. Vaccine rivals teamed up on development, a consortium of players pooled resources for plasma research, Big Pharma teamed to scale up manufacturing and more. Executives across the industry talked about extending that cooperative spirit beyond the pandemic. What’s the state of collaboration in biopharma now? We’ll explore the latest cooperative efforts tackling the pandemic and other common problems the industry wants to solve.
