March 8th, 2012 – EpiX Analytics to present in workshop “Modeling Practical Aspects of Clinical Trials” at the American Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics in National Harbor, MD
On March 15, 2012, Dr. Huybert Groenendaal, managing partner of EpiX Analytics, will be presenting “When there are differences in opinions: Combining Expert Opinions”. The presentation will be part of the workshop “Modeling Practical Aspects of Clinical Trials”, and will focus on the use of different data sources as well as the use of experts in probabilistic modeling in early drug development.
“The conference will draw thousands of scientists in the pharmaceutical industry. The presentation will focus on techniques to combine a variety of data sources and/or expert estimates used to model early stage drug development” says Dr. Groenendaal. “During early drug development there is little safety and/or efficacy data, data sources from different animal models or studies can often provide conflicting information, and expert estimates often disagree. In such situation, probabilistic techniques to combine data and expert opinion are important to provide a sound way of using all sources of evidence to support decision making”
