Decision-making in drug development

  • Dates: 12 Dec, 2018
  • How to find us: Servier 50 Rue Carnot, F- 92284 Suresnes France
Taking decisions during the development of a new drug requires combining many and varying pieces of information. The interconnections between them are often only partially known, reflecting the complexity of the context in which drugs are evaluated and the cognitive load required for health care decisions. Decision-makers need quantitative tools to support informed decisions, with transparent processes that synthesize the whole available information in order to evaluate the success associated to different options.

This meeting aims to bring together statisticians from the pharmaceutical industry and academia to hear about recent advances in statistical methods for quantitative decision-making in drug development.

Anthony O'Hagan
