Exactly one year ago, we met with panelists at Top 25 Pharma companies, Biogen and GSK, and vendors, PCI Clinical Services and Suvoda, to discuss how adaptations in the clinical supply chain would shape the way clinical operations will function in the future.

With 2020 behind us, our panelists will reflect on a year’s experience navigating the effects of the pandemic to explore best ways to implement emergent trial designs and trends in supply chain strategy. They will speak about what clinical operations trends will remain or arise as our society moves beyond the impact of COVID-19.

Questions we will address:

  • How have trials designs shifted and supply chain strategies changed to accommodate for an increased need for flexibility and decentralization?
  • What evolutions in the clinical supply chain over the past year have become more permanent?
  • Looking back, what could have been done differently to increase efficiencies in the supply chain and in managing elements of decentralized trials?
  • How have decentralized models evolved from regulatory, operational logistics, distribution, and vendor collaboration standpoints?
