Experts discuss AI’s future in pharma

In June of 2022, Open AI forever changed the world’s technological landscape with the release of ChatGPT 3.5. The explosion and proliferation of AI tools have become a focal point of interest and curiosity in almost every industry, with commentators in pharma wondering how AI can improve clinical research.

In January 2024, panelists from Syneos, Obvious Ventures, Sapphire Ventures, IDEA Pharma, and GSR Ventures joined Medable’s CEO, Dr. Michelle Longmire, to discuss the purpose, potential, and power this transformative technology offers. 

Here’s what they had to say.

Rapid evolution: How DCT’s DNA became standard in modern clinical trials

It’s impossible to deny how different clinical trials look almost four years after the pandemic revolutionized clinical research. Today, the digital and decentralized tools and technologies that enabled clinical trials to carry on through the COVID-19 pandemic are present (in some form) in nearly all clinical trials, a far cry from the dynamics of 2019.

Unlocking scalability in pharma with AI

What is the path to addressing the remaining 10,000 human diseases? 

Almost two years ago, Medable CEO Michelle Longmire asked this question in a blog titled “Accelerating the path from possibility to proof in the development of new medicines.” Back then, she wrote that leveraging the most meaningful tools we had at the time would drive new synergies at the intersection of safety, science, and speed and enable a new era of drug development.

Today, our industry stands at the precipice of a new era in clinical research, marked by rapid advancements in technologies that society widely refers to as artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI and ML). While each of these technologies has existed for some time, recent advancements in their capabilities have brought them to the forefront of our industry.

In the future, AI and ML may prove to be the most important technologies of our time, as they have the potential to enable true scalability in pharma, as well as other business sectors.

Patient perspectives: The balancing act of trial participation

When we think about clinical trials, our minds often gravitate toward the scientific intricacies of these studies - the testing of new treatments, data analysis, and the quest for medical breakthroughs. However, it's essential to remember that behind every clinical trial, there's a patient, and often a caregiver, whose life is deeply impacted by this journey. 

So, let’s consider this: the concept of "Participation-Life Balance" and how technology can enhance the design and workflow of clinical trials while acknowledging the holistic needs of patients and caregivers to work towards achieving this. 


Unlocking Patient Engagement: Enhancing the Clinical Trial Experience with Consumerization

In this panel discussion, industry experts from Uber Health, iXlayer, and Medable will discuss the rise in technology adoption has also raised the expectations of trial participants, who now seek simpler, more consumer-like experiences in clinical design.

Medable Petitions Comments on ICHE6(R3) Draft Guidance

When technology enters a regulated environment, early adopters often cite regulatory uncertainty as a hurdle. In fact, a 2021 Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI) survey showed that regulatory uncertainty and lack of harmonization were the top reasons that hindered adoption of elements of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the increased adoption of decentralized methodologies was guided by temporary guidances put out by many regulators such as FDA’s March 2020 “Conduct of Clinical Trials of Medical Products During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency” and the corresponding EMA guidance, which explicitly mentioned it would expire at the end of the designated Public Health Emergency.
