Webinar – Respiratory Endpoints, Scientific Leadership and the Asia-Pacific Region May 16th, 2017

In this live webinar, the speakers will outline both the importance of a coherent endpoint strategy as well as the importance of leveraging scientific leadership early-on in trial design.

Leading thoracic physician researcher and Chair of the Lung Foundation of Australia, Professor Christine Jenkins will use examples from her long-term partnership as a scientific leader at George Clinical to discuss:

  • The importance of defining respiratory endpoints so that they are accurate and precise;
    • What can go wrong if you do not…
  • Develop efficiency strategies by identifying the pros and cons of using specific endpoints in your respiratory trials;
    • Clinical outcomes
    • Patient reported outcomes
  • The standardization of endpoints;
  • The importance of trial design in assessing specific endpoints and how to maximise trial efficiencies in relation to endpoints of greatest influence

Professor Jenkins will also discuss:

  • The role of Scientific Leadership in endpoint strategies
  • The impact of Scientific Leadership when integrated throughout trial design and delivery
  • The benefits of designing and conducting large respiratory trials in Asia
