Join the live webinar with featured speaker Deb Kientop, MBA, Vice President, Oncology Development at Synteract on Monday, April 27, 2020 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).

Targeted therapies are currently the focus of much anti-cancer drug development. They are a cornerstone of precision medicine, using information about a person’s genes and proteins to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. While these therapies show great promise, they are also very complex. These immuno-oncology and cytostatic treatments often require different assumptions and factors to be tested compared to traditional, early safety-based trials for cytotoxic agents. Clinical trial design is a critical factor that can make or break success. Careful foresight in initial stages can impact data quality and trial duration.

This webinar will address leading therapies in novel oncology trials. It will provide an in-depth perspective on what drug developers can do to find the right patients. It will offer insights into just how important biomarkers and companion diagnostics may be in targeted therapy clinical trials.

Attendees will gain important insights from experts developing some of the most innovative oncology clinical trials today.
