NEWDIGS Events

NEWDIGS Design Labs

Adaptive Biomedical Innovation (ABI) Design Labs use the NEWDIGS Scenario Design approach to holistically explore and debate a product example from each stakeholder’s perspective in an interactive setting which combines qualitative discussion with fact bases and simulations. Design Labs are invitation only.

ABI Design Lab on Efficacy to Effectiveness (E2E) Clinical Trials

February 8: E2E Clinical Trial Design
This session will focus on optimizing the design of a single E2E clinical trial. It is co-hosted by the Johns Hopkins-Tufts Trial Innovation Center (JHU-Tufts TIC) and the Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI).

February 9: Adaptive pathway design for antibiotic
This session will build on a case (an antibiotic) analyzed in the NEWDIGS November 2016 Design Lab. It will focus on the evaluation of a proposed adaptive pathways approach to the development and delivery of the product, including a continuous E2E clinical trial design.
