Clinical Trials in the Precision Medicine Era
New Techniques, New Complexity

A WCG | CenterWatch FREE Virtual Roundtable
Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

Drug pipelines are changing and sponsors are focusing on highly targeted therapies. To do that effectively, investigators must rely on genetic testing.

But that’s easier said than done.

Historically a Phase III trial would collect about a million data points; with genetic testing that’s increased to 3 to 5 million data points. And to enroll the right patients, genetic testing often must be done before someone enters a trial.

That volume of highly complex data leaves many investigators struggling to explain results to patients. It can be daunting.

That’s where a new partnership between WCG and InformedDNA can help you.

Mark your calendar for Aug. 23 when CenterWatch brings you a FREE virtual roundtable, featuring WCG’s Chief Medical Officer Lindsay McNair, InformedDNA’s Karmen Trzupek and Jill Johnston of WCG’s Site Management Group.

These three highly engaging genetic and trial experts will bring you the their best advice for thriving in this brave new clinical trial world.
