Improving Data Monitoring to Better Assess Outcomes of Clinical Trials

Interim Analysis Symposium – Interim Analysis Symposium

Knowing when and how to implement an interim analysis is a topic that challenges professionals across the scope of clinical research responsibilities yet remains only mildly explored. This spring, join Merck and many other leaders on the forefront of clinical research at this first-of-its-kind event. Meet professionals from the organizations making headlines for their interim reviews of breakthrough therapies, and beyond, as they discuss how to enhance understanding of data management through the exploration of real world examples. Attend to exchange best practices and share lessons learned with peers, thought leaders, stakeholders and regulators across the scope of clinical trials.

The mission of the Interim Analysis Symposium is to provide attendees with proven processes and insights that enhance the industry’s ability to expedite life-saving therapies to market.
