Advarra IRB Chair Luke Gelinas Featured in PRIM&R Blog and Webinar About Complexity in Clinical Trial Design

In June, Advarra IRB Chairperson Luke Gelinas was a guest speaker in a PRIM&R webinar called Complexity in Clinical Trial Design: A Primer on Adaptive and Platform Trials. As a follow-up to that event, Gelinas was recently featured in PRIM&R’s blog Ampersand. This blog outlines the key terms they used in the webinar, explores ethical and regulatory challenges, and provides solutions on how to bridge the gap between IRBs and researchers.

“The effort to find better and more effective therapies for a wide variety of diseases in a more cost-effective manner is one that is endorsed by patients, regulators, the medical community, and drug developers,” according to Gelinas and his co-presenter Marianne Kearney Chase. “Complex clinical trial designs hold much promise in helping to achieve these objectives.”
