Presentation: Empowering Pediatric Research: ViS & BIO Collaboration

Monday, November 04, 2013
1:45 PM - 2:10 PM
GH - Empire Ballroom I

Nearly 60% of the disease burden for high-priority conditions, including schizophrenia, depression, malaria, and HIV/Aids, is borne by children, but it remains difficult to find experienced research sites for pediatric research. ViS Research, in partnership with BIO and its member companies, has mapped over 3,000 institutions with pediatric experience, across 84 countries. Together, ViS & BIO are building a pediatric research network, that allows research institutions to participate at no cost. The resulting patient demographics, together with ViS' online feasibility and analytics platform, allow drug developers to quickly navigate and evaluate pediatric clinical research infrastructure and initiate trials faster and at a lower cost.
