PAST EVENT – 2019 ACTA Hackathon of Novel Trial Designs webinars

Join us for a series of presentations on ideas, novel methods and designs for clinical trials

Our invited guest speakers will be presenting proposed new methods for the design, conduct, and/or statistical analysis of trials. We’ll be focusing on novel approaches rather than set research questions, which means these strategies could be adapted to address an array of questions across many diseases and disciplines.

These presentations and panel discussions will be held via webinar and then made available as recordings on the ACTA website. 

If you join us live you can ask questions, and we’d also like you to rate the presentations. The audience-choice winner of this series will be invited to present their idea at the ACTA International Conference in October.
