Novel Trials Workshop - 2 half day webinars.

About this Event

What is the event about?

Novel trial design has been highlighted as a priority for the government and the wider UK research community in the Life Sciences Sector 2 Deal.

The MHRA was specifically tasked with engaging with industry in order to be able to develop and further enable access to its advice services, as well as strengthen the UK environment for novel trials in the UK.

Previous work, such as the ECMC CID consensus paper, has noted challenges in conducting novel trials, and regulatory aspects were included in the recommendations.

The aim of this workshop is for MHRA to present examples of how Sponsors and researchers can improve the regulatory aspects of these trials, providing some initial solutions that can be taken forward. The workshop will also share the results from a survey on novel trials conducted by MHRA earlier in 2020 and lessons learnt from novel trial design for treating COVID-19.

The survey also asked stakeholders their opinions on the advice services available from MHRA and responses and further information will be included in Day 2 discussions.

After the workshop the presentations and any discussion aspects will be published in a workshop report.

Who the event is targeted at?

Delegates from across varying backgrounds will be able to register, including commercial and non-commercial, and it is hoped that learning points will be disseminated to colleagues following the workshop to help those not able to attend. Delegates do not need to have had any experience in novel trials, although this will be beneficial as basic knowledge will be assumed.

Pre-reading to understand the topic and context includes:

At the webinar participants will learn:

  • MHRA perspective on novel trials for all disciplines (non-clinical, quality and clinical) as well as the statistical challenges and considerations for a future marketing authorisation, and aspects to consider for GCP adherence
  • Examples seen by MHRA – pitfalls and how to avoid them when planning or executing novel design trials
  • Results of the survey and MHRA next steps
  • Available MHRA advice services
