COVID-19’s global spread and resulting impact on all health systems has brought AI/ML tools and technologies front and center to help us navigate and eventually survive the crisis.

Nowhere is this more evident than in clinical development. Ongoing clinical trials have been paused, while many COVID-19 related trials have ramped up at seemingly warp speed. What does this mean for the future of clinical development? What innovations are necessary to get clinical trials and drugs to patients safely and faster in a time of pandemic and the post-pandemic era?

Here’s what the AI in Biopharma Summit Community are talking about

How virtual trials are evolving and why they are more important than ever in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic

Decentralized and hybrid trials – the time has come as highlighted by the COVID-19 crisis

Pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations are feeling the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on the clinical trial life cycle and are likely to incorporate remote ways of working to mitigate disruption

Below is a sample of the timely case studies to be shared at the AI Applications in Biopharma Summit this October 26 and 27 in Boston:

Case study: The need for a modernized drug development model in a pandemic leveraging RWE and advanced analytics
