Clinical Trials Europe (CTE), held in Barcelona, Spain, called on industry and academia to submit their big ideas on what can be done for cancer patients in real-world trials. The response was overwhelming, but luckily a panel of clinical trial experts were at hand to select the top three ideas, which were presented at the conference in November 2023.

The judges were:

  • Thierry Escudier, Strategic Leader, Pistoia Alliance
  • Piper Fromy, Program Lead, Digital Measures Development, Digital Medicine Society (DiMe)
  • Kai Langel, Director, Janssen Clinical Innovation (JCI)
  • Agnès Liard, Executive Clinical Research Director France, Global Clinical Trial Operations, MSD
  • Isabela Niculae, Head of Global Clinical Sciences & Operations Innovation, UCB
  • Jessica Shull, Director of Digital Therapeutics, Vicore Pharma AB

Among the aspects the judges were looking for were how the pitches could help reduce the patient burden and make the clinical trial journey smoother, along with how we as an industry could help make trials more real-world-based.

This eBook presents the top three ideas based on both the initial proposal and the presentation at CTE:

  • WINNER: “Harnessing rural healthcare infrastructure across Africa” – Kingsley Essel Arthur, Pharmfield Pharmaceutical Limited
  • “Digital health platforms to empower clinical innovation” – Linus Kao, Senior DCT Expert, Novartis Pharma
  • “Off-the-shelf patient compliance in oncology trials” – Tim Davies, Executive Director, Delve Health
