Accelerating Vaccine Development Through Operational Excellence

April 18, 2024



The warp-speed approach required to discover, develop, and deliver new tools to end the COVID pandemic cannot be sustained, and yet the pace needed to efficiently test novel vaccines in large, representative trials remains extremely fast. What have we learned and what are we doing differently to enable this?

In this webinar, join Anne Kasmar, MD, MSc, and Leslie Johnston, veteran clinical trial operations leader as we share our insights into achieving sustainable speed at scale.

We will discuss:

  • Current trends and hot topics in vaccine development
  • Challenges and opportunities with site selection and study start-up
  • Practices that ensure inclusive recruitment
  • Procedures that facilitate just-in-time delivery
  • Case studies that demonstrate fit-for-purpose solutions
  • Our views on the horizon, including emerging advances in AI/ML and their impact on our work.
