Clinical research is facing a new landscape of challenges. Over a thousand ongoing immuno-oncology clinical trials are enrolling a limited pool of cancer patients. New data emerges regularly that could inform drug discovery. How can clinical trials evolve to translate discoveries to treatments in a sustainable way? Experts representing the industry, academic and nonprofit perspectives discuss how collaboration can unite the strengths of each research pillar to effectively design a clinical trial with science and patients at the core. This talk was recorded at the Precision Medicine World Conference in January 2019 in Silicon Valley.
