"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." Harnessing the power of collaboration truly can alter the healthcare landscape as we know it today. This session will explore the how and why behind today's collaborations, and share perspectives around the next generation of collaborations. How will we need to work together differently? What may be the most surprising collaboration of the future? What new collaborations need to exist to defy the bounds of innovation and accelerate the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and - ultimately - cures? This thought-provoking session will offer candid and innovative insight about what is needed to shake up the current ecosystem and truly transform patient health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how collaboration is working today, and discuss how the ‘next generation of collaborations’ may be different
  • Share perspectives around whether collaborative R&D, pooling data and insights from academia, sponsors, and CROs is in our near future
  • Describe what roles the FDA, consortiums & associations, technology providers, and other stakeholders may have to play to enable collaborations of the future

Useful presentation. Less information on new technology and more talk about collaboration to improve performance on available ones.
