Referencing a few examples of current studies underway, the speakers will share best practices for deploying digital devices into clinical trials of neurological disorders and the insights that continuous collection of physiological data enables.
TORONTO (PRWEB) May 28, 2020
Neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are on the rise throughout the world as the population ages. These diseases represent a major threat to human health and have diverse effects, with some causing memory/cognitive impairments and others hindering patients’ ability to speak, breathe and/or move. Current treatments and medications are inadequate for treating these disorders and new, effective therapies are sorely needed.
Digital devices are helping researchers forge new paths to better understand and treat neurological disorders. Join this webinar to learn about the types of digital devices that are currently available as well as the key clinical insights that can be gained from their use.
Referencing a few examples of current studies underway, the speakers will share best practices for deploying digital devices into clinical trials of neurological disorders and the insights that continuous collection of physiological data enables. Finally, the speakers will discuss the current status of biomarkers in neurodegenerative disease research and the implications of digital biomarker data in clinical endpoints.
Join Ray Dorsey, MD, David M. Levy Professor of Neurology and Director of the Center for Health + Technology, University of Rochester, Mark Matson, MBA, Vice President, Sales and Licensing, MC10 Inc. and Glen Frick, MD, PhD, FAAP, Senior Medical Director, Neuroscience, Ophthalmology & Women’s Health, Covance in a live webinar on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at 10am EDT (3pm BST/UK).
