Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials


SMi is proud to present its 8th annual Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials conference, held in central London on the 24 & 25 March 2014.

Hear through case studies how all sizes of pharmaceutical companies have successfully implemented trials incorporating adaptive designs. This conference is the only in Europe that focuses on adaptive designs specifically, providing delegates with updates on recent developments in enrichment design, dose response modeling, computer simulation, internal and external regulatory expectations and new data on evaluating adaptive dose ranging studies.

Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials 2014 aims to show you how you can quickly and accurately implement an adaptive design clinical trial for your drug development - from initial processes in managing trials to choosing the right time to implement change
