Overview     

DPHARM is the conference that challenges and reports on innovation to shake up the way we do clinical trials to reduce patient/physician burden and drive greater efficiencies. We challenge how we want clinical trials to look by 2030 and share examples from those who are doing something about it. We highlight major opportunities to fundamentally change how clinical trials are operationalized going forward.

DPHARM in a Post Covid-19 World

As we get through Covid-19, countless R&D companies have rapidly adopted modern technologies to give patients flexibility to participate in clinical trials. They have been successfully collecting data and monitoring from afar as well as developing clinical protocols that limit clinic visits and many will be presenting on these experiences at DPHARM.

Celebrating 10 Years Virtually

In 2020 we celebrated the 10th annual anniversary of DPHARM virtually. It is our job to provide the best possible virtual experience. We developed an agenda that reflects the urgency of much-needed changes in drug development through the reporting of innovative examples.
