Imaging biomarkers are currently a “hot topic” in pharmaceutical circles. This was brought into focus at a recent symposium in Princeton and repeated in Amsterdam on “Current and Innovative Imaging Biomarkers in Neurology and Oncology Drug Development.”At this symposium, BioClinica brought together several leading experts and key opinion leaders to present on emerging imaging biomarker trends. Cornelis van Kuijk (Professor and Chair Department of Radiology, Vrije Universiteit Medical Center, Amsterdam) provided an informative introduction to imaging biomarkers in clinical trials.

The 2010 Optimizer User Conference recently ended and I am happy to report a surge in discussion around technology for clinical trial supply planning. I think this speaks well to the growth of the Optimizer product and greater acceptance of the application of more sophisticated tools to the clinical supply planning process in general.
