It’s been a busy summer for the Algorics team and it’s an exciting time for the company…
In-house: As a company we continue to mature and evolve, recently obtaining another wave of follow-on investment to continue our development and secure further R&D projects planned by our team to ensure we remain innovators in our space. We are also moving our US office to New Jersey, which will provide improved facilities and growth opportunities in the east coast pharma & biotech corridor.
Out and About: We always enjoy participating in industry events around the world and it is particularly rewarding when we are invited to share our experiences with industry colleagues. Abby Abraham chaired an RBM session at the SCDM Annual Conference including presenters from Roche, Quintiles & MedNet Solutions. The SCDM event included a number of noteworthy sessions, including the keynote speaker Steve Smith who addressed the audience from the perspective of a patient advocate and discussed the need to expedite orphan drug development. He highlighted the importance of new tools and improved data management to increase efficiency and quality of clinical trials, whilst managing the cost, as well as the focus on transforming the regulatory review process and stakeholder inputs. We were also heartened to hear Vaishali Popat, M.D., Associate Director of Medical Informatics and Regulatory Review Science, FDA talk around the robust use of medical informatics by regulators and medical officers during data reviews, forming the basis for effective data analysis from a safety and medical perspective. This approach appears to be growing in adoption as the basis for regulatory inspections.
Prior to the SCDM event, Abby presented a session on ‘Technology & Process in RBM’ at DIA India and also presented two posters at the DIA Annual Meeting. Finally, just last week, myself and Sridhar Punniamurthi, our Statistical Programming Manager, presented on ‘Quantitative Signal Detection in Post Marketing Data’ at the Conference for Statistics and Programming in Clinical Research (ConSPIC 2016) organised by the Indian Association of Statistics in Clinical Trials (IASCT). Look out for us at PCT US in Boston and RBM 2016 in Philadelphia in the coming weeks – we always appreciate the opportunity to catch up in person!
