On this pharmaphorum podcast, host Jonah Comstock takes us to the PharmStars presentation in November 2022 at the Boston Seaport, with interviews conducted at the event. The topic: Innovations in Real-World Evidence.
Jonah speaks with: Dr Shrawan Patel, PharmStars mentorship director; Aidan Doyle head of data insights and analytics at Alexion; uMed founder Matt Wilson; Jim Cronin, senior director of R&D and IT at Alexion; and Akanksha Mehta, an investor at Transformation Capital.
They discuss the current need for real-world data and real-world evidence to augment and supplement clinical trial data, as well as the many challenges to finding, harmonising, and analysing that data. And, in between, Jonah describes the start-ups at the event and their different approaches to tackling these thorny problems.
