Webinar on the Societal & Ethical impact of Computational Modelling and simulation on New Treatment Development


Presented by EFGCP & Avicenna Alliance on the 25th of January 2018, 16.30 CET

Modern medicine development is not modern, it was simply the best we could do before the dawn of the digital age. Computational modelling and simulation has the potential to redesign healthcare delivery, conceptions of patient safety and the development and clinical trials of medicinal products and medical devices.

On the 25th of January, The European Forum for Good Clinical Practices (EFGCP) and Avicenna Alliance organise the first in a series of three webinars on Computational Modelling and Simulation. The webinars are moderated by Peter O'Donnell (Brussels Correspondent, APM Health Europe / European Columnist, Applied Clinical Trials). The first session will assess the societal and ethical impact of computational modelling and simulation on new treatment development. The focus of the event will lie on the impact related to gaps in regulation, compliance and ethics. The webinar begins at 16.30 PM CET and the panel includes several experts in the field.

I. Program of the first webinar:
