PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medable Inc., the leading software provider for patient-centered clinical trials, today announced that Alison Holland, Medable’s Head of Decentralized Trials, will participate in the Prix Galien UK 2022 Forum & Awards Ceremony. As a panelist, Holland will discuss key learnings about clinical trials from the COVID-19 pandemic alongside the following panelists:

- Dr. Christopher Corsico, Global Head of Development at GSK
- Dame June Raine, CEO of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA)

“The pandemic has transformed the industry’s views on clinical trial execution, demonstrating how trial design, regulatory flexibilities and use of real-world evidence can reimagine the research and development process,” said Holland. “During the height of COVID, we saw how existing clinical trials went more remote and more digital, making it clear that clinical trial flexibility is essential for the future of medicine. This work is the core of our mission at Medable, and I look forward to discussing how we can prepare for the future with my fellow panelists.”
“Clinical Trials & Regulations: What Have We Learned From COVID?” is the first panel at the Prix Galien UK 2022 Forum. Session panelists will discuss how the life sciences community can apply learnings from COVID-19 on clinical trial conduct, regulatory flexibility, and use of real-world evidence to improve biopharmaceutical research. This panel will take place in London on Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 2:00-2:50 PM BST.
