Discover an informative webinar on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical research and how researchers can benefit from this technology to maximize efficiency and patient centricity. Like it or not, AI is here to stay. The speed with which AI-powered apps, platforms and software have taken over is astounding — and for good reason. AI holds immense potential for optimizing and enhancing almost every industry, from coding and writing to vacation planning, customer service and more. Clinical research should be on that list, too. Want to learn why?

Join the Elligo Elite Learning Series webinar for an open discussion on how AI can enhance and accelerate almost every aspect of drug development and how researchers can implement this new technology in their research. The roundtable will be hosted by Michael Ibara, PharmD, Chief Data Officer at Elligo Health Research® and will feature AI and research experts Paul Della Maggiora, CEO & CTO at Avallano and Enrique Garcia-Rivera, PhD, VP of AI at Bullfrog AI.


The panelists will dive into the promise AI holds for accelerating clinical trial enrollment and intake as well as enhancing the patient experience to increase retention. They will also discuss how AI can unlock even more insights from trial data to not only hasten time to market but also to make drugs, devices and therapies safer and more effective. Perhaps most importantly, the experts will offer essential insights into navigating the intricacies of combining new technology with a highly regulated industry.

If researchers want to design, enroll and run an efficient clinical trial in the modern world of AI, they need to cultivate a deep understanding of the technology, its potential and its risks. If they don’t, they could miss an incredible opportunity to remain competitive and improve more lives around the world.
