From a demographic standpoint, the millennial generation is taking on managerial responsibilities in clinical research. How is that impacting how we think, plan, and run clinical studies?

PRC Clinical is organizing the third ClinPulse panel discussion and networking event on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, from 6pm to 8.30pm PST at Dominic’s in South San Francisco. Clinical trial industry leaders and experts will discuss the topic: “Millennials in Research: New Ideas To Think, Plan, and Run Your Studies.” Food and drinks will be served.

The panel will be comprised of clinical trial executives, industry leaders, and technology experts:

  • John Silowsky: Director, Clinical Operations at Nektar Therapeutics
  • James Denmark: CEO & Founder at myClin
  • Nadia Bracken: Founder at ClinOps Toolkit
  • Moderated by Micah Woong: Account Executive at Aerotek

This expert panel discussion will explore the impact of millennials on clinical trials, and understand how this change in the workforce is driving a change in how people run and think about clinical trials. The precise definition and delineation of millennials vary from one source to another, but most literature defines a millennial as a person reaching young adulthood between 2000 and 2010.

  • From a demographic standpoint, the millennial generation is taking on managerial responsibilities in clinical research. How is that impacting how we think, plan, and run clinical studies?
  • In their everyday life dealing with technology, millennials have become acquainted to software and apps with superior user experience, social media capabilities, and cross-platform integrated and mobile solutions. How are millennials' expectations toward technology pushing for a transformation of clinical research tools?
  • Millennials have a different work style, team spirit, and communication practices than their elderly. What can we learn from new practices and expectations and to how to better work together to advance clinical research?

The influence of social media networks, smartphone apps and the "ultra-mobility" factor is a strong influencer amongst millennials, favoring "instant" solutions, modes of exchange and communication. The "free" economy or the "sharing" economy also plays a role in influencing a younger workforce and driving decisions that are reshaping clinical research practices.

  • New work practices are on the rise. How does the millennials generation favor less emails, less hierarchy, more flexibility, more freelancing, but also more mobility between companies?
  • How does it ultimately impact clinical trials? Flexible start-up, adaptive studies, multivariate and adaptive approach, less down-time, real-time access to data, enhanced user experience.
